Diabetes management specialist at the Mayo Clinic explain that following a diabetic diet  means eating a variety of nutritious foods in moderate amounts and sticking to regular mealtimes.

Rather than a restrictive diet, a diabetes diet is a healthy-eating plan that’s naturally rich in nutrients and low in fat and calories, with an emphasis on fruits, vegetables and whole grains. In fact, a diabetes diet is the best eating plan for most everyone.

The certified diabetes educators of Diabetes Management and Supplies in New Orleans teach patients either individually and/or in small-group settings. Their registered dietitians also provide medical nutrition therapy for those in need of additional and disease-specific nutritional counseling.

Preventing kidney damage is a challenge, which is why a new prevention target discovered by scientists could be good news.

Scientists inJapanhave found a new target for diabetic kidney disease in mice, and it’s called osteopontin. This molecule is involved in the inflammatory process, and inflammation has been established as playing a key role in diabetic nephropathy, as shown in a number of studies, including a new review in Mediators of Inflammation.
