Choosing what, how much and when to eat following a diabetes diagnosis can be overwhelming. But don’t worry: There is help.
Your primary care doctor or endocrinologist might refer you to a certified diabetes educator (CDE) or registered dietician (RD) to learn more about managing your diabetes and diet. If he or she doesn’t refer you, ask.
This guide isn’t a replacement for a doctor’s visit. Here we’ll cover tips to help you communicate effectively with your dietician or CDEO and specific questions to ask — all things to help you get the most out of your relationship with your healthcare provider.
