Food

Eating healthy food is important for everyone. For people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes, prediabetes, and obesity, nutrition plays an even greater role in managing day-to-day health.

For those with diabetes, food can be especially tricky – it can be hard to know how a particular food might affect your blood sugar. But, food can also be key to keeping you healthy and keeping your blood sugar levels in range.

Unfortunately, everyone’s body is different and there is no easy answer to the question of what to eat with diabetes. You’ll have to find a way of eating that is healthy for you and fits who you are and your lifestyle.

Here you’ll find all sorts of articles on healthy eating, including how food might affect glucose levels, recommendations and strategies, and delicious recipes.
