Diabetes 101: Knowing How To Read Labels

Managing your diabetes can be confusing. There are so many things to track and monitor that getting confused or making a mistake can sometimes seem inevitable.

But there are things you can do to make things easier.

For us, we believe education is one of those things. And with that comes knowledge of what you’re eating.

Because maintaining a healthy, well-balanced diet is an essential element of maintaining control of your numbers, it’s important to know exactly what is in your food. And while dining out can sometimes make that complicated, when you’re cooking at home, it’s a good idea to always check out the nutrition labels of the food your preparing.

Why?

Because you might find that some of your go-to healthy snacks are actually packing a pretty big punch when it comes to calories, carbohydrates or sugar.

Check out the video below where you can learn just how to look for the most important parts of the nutrition label for people with diabetes!
