Nutrition plays a critical role in helping people with diabetes achieve optimal health. The following pages provide information you can provide to your patients. Consider referring your patient to a dietitian for specific advice, especially for

  • advice about incorporating principles into work and home life
  • advanced carbohydrate counting
  • if there are other therapeutic needs (e.g. kidney disease)
  • if modifications are needed or requested (e.g. vegetarian diet)

See the Diabetes Services page for referral options in the Calgary zone.
