Consult a registered dietician or nutritionist

It’s important to always follow the advice of your GP or specialist diabetes doctor (sometimes called an endocrinologist) if you’ve been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes or you’ve been told you’re at risk of developing the condition. This includes taking any medications they may have prescribed for you.

In addition to this care and the tips we’ve provided here, you may benefit from the advice of a registered dietician or nutritionist that specialises in expert diabetes care. This can be especially helpful if you’re confused about what diet is best for you or if you need to make significant or overwhelming changes to your diet or your weight.

Your GP or diabetes specialist can refer you or help you find the right dietician or nutritionist in your area. They can then guide you through the right diet for you, ensuring that you eat well and don’t miss out on important nutrients.

Summary:
Speak to your GP or diabetes doctor about getting a referral to a dietician or nutritionist that specialises in diabetes management.
