Diabetes & Prediabetes
GET TO KNOW YOUR BLOOD SUGAR
Diabetes involves problems with a hormone called insulin. Normally insulin helps control our blood sugar levels, moving it from our bloodstream into our cells to be used for energy. Diabetes can lead to long term complications such as artery, kidney, nerve and eye damage. Learn ways to prevent and manage diabetes through healthy eating.
RETHINK YOUR DRINK
Take a minute and think about what you drink in a typical day. Unless you are a true water lover, you may be getting some extra, unneeded calories through sweetened soft drinks, sodas, iced tea, coffee, juice, and energy and sports drinks. In fact, sugary drinks are the number one source of added sugars in our diet.
