Eat well for good health
If you have type 2 diabetes, or are at risk of developing diabetes, knowing what and how to eat is essential for maintaining good blood glucose levels and good health.
But when it comes to diet, there is no one-size fits all approach to suit everyone. That's why finding a program that works for you is key to staying healthy.
If you have type 2 diabetes following a healthy diet and exercising can help you lose weight and make it easier for you to manage your condition. It can also help prevent complications associated with diabetes like problems with your eyes, kidneys, feet and legs or heart. If you have prediabetes, losing weight and keeping it off could stop you from developing type 2 diabetes, and support long term good health and wellbeing.
