Following a careful meal plan is the first step in managing diabetes and keeping blood sugars in a therapeutic range. This is also the hardest step in diabetes management. Dining with Diabetes helps by teaching persons with diabetes ways to reduce sugar, salt, and fat in foods, without giving up good taste.
What is Dining with Diabetes?
The program is designed for people with diabetes and their family members. The five-class series includes diabetes education, cooking demonstrations, and tasting of healthy foods. After each lesson, participants will take home recipes and knowledge about how to manage diabetes in their daily lives.
