I have Type 2 diabetes and want to make sure I am following the right type of diet. Can you recommend some resources?

For general information on diabetes and the diabetes diet:

• American Diabetes Association www.diabetes.org

• Joslin Diabetes Institue www.joslin.org/diabetes-information.html

For keeping track of your food intake, monitoring your calories and counting your carbohydrates (since they affect your blood sugar):

• My Fitness Pal - a free app you can download to your phone

• Supertracker from the USDA - www.supertracker.usda.gov

Some general information about diabetes:

Also, check with your local hospital or health department to see if they offer a diabetes support group, classes, or a certified diabetes educator (CDE). Classes and intruction are often covered by insurance.

We don’t plan to change that model. Support from our readers will help us maintain and strengthen the editorial independence that is crucial to our mission to help make Western North Carolina a better place to call home. If you are able, please support The Smoky Mountain News.
