10. Consult a registered dietician or nutritionist
It’s important to always follow the advice of your doctor or 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 in order to effectively manage the symptoms of diabetes .
Your dietician or nutritionist can also guide you through the right diet for you, ensuring that you eat well and don’t miss out on important nutrients.
Speak to your doctor or endocrinologist about getting a referral to a dietician or nutritionist that specialises in diabetes management.
