The Go-To Guide

There’s a new and updated edition of the American Diabetes Association Complete Guide to Diabetes out! My parents gave me the 2nd edition when I was diagnosed. I’m sure the 3rd and 4th editions each went through their updates and changes, but when I picked up the new 5th edition recently, I can hardly recognize it. The layout has changed, there’s more information on health care systems, insurance and men’s and women’s health – the book has a completely different look and feel. Continue reading

Award-Winning and Diabetes-Friendly Mediterranean Meals

Back in November, a friend and I made a “Mediterranean Thanksgiving” using The Mediterranean Diabetes Cookbook. Later, I chatted with the author, Amy Riolo, about her book, her culinary experiences all around the world and her connection to diabetes. I thought her cookbook was great, so I used it again for a potluck evening with friends. Right then, I should have realized that I wasn’t the only one appreciating the great stuff in Amy’s cookbook. It turns out, the Nautilus Book Awards took notice, too! Continue reading

Pretty Feet, Heel to Toe

A few weeks ago I wrote a rather punny post about Happy Feet and how to prevent some of the common diabetes-related foot complications. Since it’s still Foot Health Awareness Month and the weather is continuing to get warmer (which makes my toes wiggle), I wanted to add a few words about pretty feet. Yes, pretty feet.

Want Happy Feet?

Spring is coming, and with it the warm weather that makes us all want to kick off our shoes and spend some time barefoot in the sun. But before you kick those shoes off, take a moment to think about your feet. Is the combination of warm weather and thinking about feet a coincidence? I think not! April is National Foot Health Awareness Month. We’ve all heard that foot complications are common among people with diabetes, but what does that mean, and how do you avoid it? Continue reading

Dishing Up Nutrition Tips

Tomorrow marks the last day of National Nutrition Month, but like so many things, nutrition is something everyone should think about year-round. In light of this, I reached out to Patti Geil, MS, RD, FADA, CDE and Tami Ross, RD, LD, CDE, the authors of a book called What Do I Eat Now? A Step-by-step Guide to Eating Right with Type 2 Diabetes that I wish I’d had when I first started nutrition education – even though I don’t have type 2 diabetes. It is a four-week program that would be helpful for anyone trying to understand what it means to maintain a healthy meal plan. Continue reading
