Description:

Join Dana Dose, R.D., CDE of Barton Nutrition Services to learn more about managing diabetes through a diet that can help you control your blood sugar:

A diabetes diet — medically known as medical nutrition therapy (MNT) for diabetes — simply translates into eating a variety of nutritious foods in moderate amounts and sticking to regular mealtimes. Rather than a restrictive diet, a diabetes diet is a healthy-eating plan that's naturally rich in nutrients and low in fat and calories, with an emphasis on fruits, vegetables and whole grains. In fact, a diabetes diet is the best eating plan for most everyone.

The community is invited to join Barton Health each month for a medical professional-led forum as a part of our free Wellness Lecture Series. Each month features a different wellness topic, which will be discussed by a related health professional within the Barton Health network.
