Nutrition and Diabetes

Diabetes occurs at approximately the same rate in people experiencing homelessness as in the general population. However, the diagnosis and management of diabetes in people experiencing homelessness remains challenging. A diabetes diet is a healthy-eating plan that's naturally rich in nutrients and low in fat and calories. Key elements are fruits, vegetables and whole grains. In fact, a diabetes diet is the best eating plan for most everyone. For many individuals with diabetes, the most challenging part of the treatment plan is determining what to eat and following a meal plan. There is not a one-size-fits-all eating pattern for individuals with diabetes, and meal planning should be individualized. As an essential and integral role in overall diabetes management, individualized or group MNT should be offered by an RDN or Certified Diabetes Educator knowledgeable and skilled in providing diabetes-specific Medical Nutritional Therapy
