In checking out a really well done video about healthy eating for people with diabetes, I was a little bit taken back by the dietitian mentioning that you should be working with your doctor and your care team to understand what your healthy eating plan should be.
In our experience with our son's doctor(s) and his diabetes, I don't think we ever had a single conversation with the doctor about healthy eating. Now to be fair, our clinic did have a full time dietitian on staff who would usually check in with us to see if we had any questions about food and diet. She even helped us determine the nutrition facts (mostly the carb count) for some of our family recipes that were a little bit tricky.
But i wondered what everyone else's experience has been at your doctor appointments. Do you talk about diet with your doctor? Does your doctor provide you with information and ideas about how to eat healthy as someone with diabetes? If so, has the information been helpful to you?
Also, if your doctor doesn't discuss healthy eating with you, does anyone else at your doctor's office talk about that topic with you?
