Riverside Leads Patients In Summer Diabetes Education
Date:7/20/2014

Tappahannock, Va. (PRWEB) July 20, 2014

Cruising down the aisles of a grocery store, especially when hungry, can fuel very real temptations to snag everything that’s chocolate-covered, frozen or freshly baked. For the majority of people, that’s ok. They can give in to those temptations with very few consequences.

But for those living with diabetes, that’s not always the case.

“Five to seven percent weight loss can significantly improve Type II Diabetes,” said Jacqueline R. Ambrose, RD, CDE, a registered dietitian with Riverside Tappahannock Hospital. “A few simple diet changes can have a big impact of your weight.”

While November is officially National Diabetes Month, diabetes educators and physicians across the Riverside Health System are encouraging patients and the community to focus on it each day.

“We have to eat every day in order to live,” said Ambrose. “We are trying to help patients see the impossible is possible, you can eat food that tastes good and keep your blood sugars within your target range.”

People often think about the winter holidays as being hard on diets, especially for diabetics. But the summers, with picnics and vacations, can be equally challenging.

But they don’t have to be. Riverside’s diabetic educators across the health system offer these tips for effective grocery shopping for healthy foods that also taste good.

Rely on labels, not the front of the box, for nutrition information. Labels detail calories, saturated fats, trans fats and carbohydrates.

Carbohydrates. Carbohydrates are complex sugars and, given that diabetics need to control their blood sugar, understanding how many to eat each day is important. Women shouldn’t eat more than 45 carbohydrates per meal, and men, no more than 60 per meal. A 15-carb snack and a 30-carb snack each day can also be part of a healthy diet.

Vegetables. Eat them. They’re so healthy that heal
