Here’s what diabetics should eat - Miami Herald

Eating a healthy diet is no easy feat for anyone, but for those with nutritional issues like diabetes, it’s a crucial balancing act.

“Both diet and weight play huge roles in the prevention and treatment of diabetes,” said Natalia Torres-Negron, a registered dietitian and certified diabetes educator for Cleveland Clinic Florida in Weston.

About 30 million Americans have diabetes, or about 9 percent of the U.S. population, according to the American Diabetes Association. About 1.5 million Americans are diagnosed with diabetes every year. The Florida Department of Health estimates that in Florida, more than 2.4 million people have diabetes and more than 5.8 million have prediabetes.
