  • Topic Info:
    Diabetes is the seventh leading cause of death in the United States, and it is estimated that 79 million Americans have diabetes.

    After hearing the diagnosis of diabetes or pre-diabetes, you may have several questions:
    • Do I need to take my blood sugar or is my A1C the best number to look at?
    • What should I be eating?
    • What should I be avoiding?
    • How does activity impact blood sugar?
    • How do I get back on track?
    • How does my weight impact my risk and my blood sugar levels?
    • Who can help me with meal planning and a plan to prevent the progression of diabetes?
    Registered dietitian nutritionist, Jessica Crandall, answers all these questions and more in honor of American Diabetes Month.
