How often do you meet with a dietitian as part of your diabetes care?

Poll dates: February 14 - 21, 1999
Total Votes: 629

A dietitian can help you with meal and nutrition planning, regardless of the type of diabetes that you have. Carbohydrate counting has replaced exchanges for many people, offering a greater selection of meals, often with little or no restrictions on the types of food eaten. If you haven't seen a dietitian lately, and find meal planning a challenge, take the time during your next visit to your diabetes team to meet with your dietitian.
