Diabetes is a chronic condition characterized by high blood sugar levels. It requires careful management, including proper nutrition, to prevent complications. Whether you have Type 1, Type 2, or gestational diabetes, our Berry Street dietitians are here to support you with individualized care.
Recognizing the signs and symptoms of diabetes is key to effective management. Working with a Berry Street dietitian can help address symptoms such as:
Increased thirst and hunger
Personalized nutrition therapy can make a significant difference in controlling these symptoms.
Type 1 diabetes is often caused by an autoimmune reaction, while Type 2 is linked to genetics, obesity, and lifestyle factors. Nutrition plays a vital role in managing both types, helping to regulate blood sugar levels, maintain a healthy weight, and reduce the risk of complications.
Uncontrolled diabetes can lead to serious health complications, including heart disease, stroke, kidney failure, and vision problems. Berry Street's personalized nutritional therapy focuses on minimizing these risks through balanced meal planning, carbohydrate counting, and ongoing support.
