Deconstructing Diabetes simplifies what to eat with diabetes.
A specialised diabetes dietitian will conduct a detailed assessment of your diabetes, medications, time since you were diagnosed, your goals, expectations and lifestyle factors (diet and exercise).
This includes assessment of your usual food intake (amounts and types of foods), and your eating behaviour (appetite, where, and why you eat).
This enables us to identify issues, what information you need to understand, and any changes with what to eat that can be made to improve your diabetes control.
Goals are then collaboratively established and strategies put in place for how to reach these. This may involve simple dietary changes, or structured meal plans depending on what is best for you. Review sessions are scheduled to review your dietary intake, and successful changes and keep you on track towards your goals.
This gives you the confidence to help control your diabetes.
