The Truth About Diabetic Diets
Learn why some of the common myths about diabetic diets are not exactly true and what steps you can take to control diabetes.
Myth: One diet fits all.
Because there is not just one type of diabetes (
gestational), there is no one
diet that works for everyone. Many people with type 2 diabetes are obese and need a
weight-control diet plan, while others with type 1 diabetes might be 17-year old athletes who need a high-calorie diet. Blood sugar control
can be achieved in different approaches such as low-carb, high-fiber, low-fat, and low glycemic index diets. It's important
to meet with your doctor and a dietitian to figure out what type of plan will work for you.
