Customized Diabetes Care Plan

Your diabetes care plan is not a one-size-fits all approach. You are unique in your food preferences and interactions with food: when you cook, how you shop, where you eat out. Your care plan will focus on your nutrition patterns, and help you identify where you may need to modify, add or change your eating plan. A diabetes care plan is not about eating less of the foods you love. In fact, it may surprise you that you can still enjoy many of the foods you currently eat. Your diabetes care plan it is about making simple lifestyle modifications that you can enjoy and maintain
