Hello, I wanted to know how can I eat healthier food. I am a diabetic.

Hi there! The good news is that eating healthy can help you control your blood sugar and improve the effects of your diabetes.

I am not able to provide specific advice for medical nutrition therapy related questions. Ask your doctor for a referral to a Registered Dietitian in your area who can help you create a personalized plan based on your own health history. In the meantime, you may find some of these healthy eating tips helpful! 

Hi, good afternoon. I have a question on gestational diabetes and the need for insulin. Can she change with diet? She is very concerned and is a SNAP participant.

Thank you for your concern. Unfortunately I am not able to answer medical nutrition therapy questions over the internet. I would recommend you go to your primary care doctor and OG-GYN to help you with the gestational diabetes. They can also refer you to a Registered Dietitian in your are to provide individualized support. 

I'm a diabetic and I want to start watching what I eat. I want to know if there are any meals that you suggest I should try out. Please and thank you.

It is wonderful that you are interested in healthy eating- that’s a great place to start! There are a few recent posts that I think will help answer your question.

This post has some info on how to promote health and this post lists some of EatFresh.org low sugar recipes and recommendations on cookbooks. 


I am a diabetic on insulin and recently told that I have gastroparesis. I am supposed to only eat soft, easy to digest food and still keep sugar under control.

Thanks for your question. Unfortunately, I cannot answer questions about an existing illness over the Internet. I recommend talking to your doctor and healthcare providers since they will be able to offer expert advice specifically for you.

I have Crohns disease, kidney disease, Fibromyalgia, Arthritis, and obesity. What is a diet that I can follow that won't exacerbate my conditions?

Thanks for your question. Unfortunately, I am unable to answer questions about existing illnesses over the Internet. It sounds like you have many health conditions to consider. It is best that you talk to your doctor since they know your personal medical history. Ask your doctor if you can have access to a dietitian so you can both create a custom meal plan together that will help alleviate your symptoms. I wish you the best!
