The right nutritional choices are extremely important when confronting diabetes. Because of this, a dietitian is the best source for food recommendations.

My friend's husband had Type 1 Diabetes. He suffered for years with the condition and actually became quite thin. He sometimes failed to follow nutritional suggestions outlined by his dietitian, and this decision did not serve him well.

Bottom line? It is always best to make the best dietary choices when suffering with this disease, it can only help.

I know this post is somewhat older, but I agree that a registered dietitian is the best individual to help you plan the right diet. Clearly, any person who suffers with diabetes or is borderline diabetic should stay away from most sugars as much as possible, especially the refined variety. In addition, unhealthy fats, like hydrogenated oils, only compound the problem. On the other hand, fresh vegetables, lean protein, and certain fibers seem to be wise choices.

Yet, as Kelly suggested, a dietitian is the person best suited to help with diabetic meal plans.

I suffer from diabetes too.. my doctor told me that if i lost weight, i would probably not suffer as much and my diabetes wouldn't be as severe... I've tried dieting and exercising but it doesn't work.. i'm on xenical for 2months and then he'll see what is more suited for me...

Actually, you should be referred to a dietitian, not just a nutritionist. Anyone by law can be called a "nutritionist" - but Registered Dietitian has the education to be qualified to help diabetics and others with meal plans. Short clarification. Thanks.

Your diabetes specialist should refer you to a nutritionist.
