A healthy diet may reduce your need for diabetes medication.
The nurses and other dedicated staff of Visiting Nurse Association of Northern New Jersey (VNA) have cared for those with diabetes for over 100 years (since 1898) and we know that diet plays a crucial role in the management of diabetes. While it's important to note that every individual's condition is unique and treatment plans should be discussed with healthcare professionals, adopting a healthy diet can often help reduce the need for diabetes medication or even prevent the onset of type 2 diabetes. Here's how diet can positively impact diabetes management:
It's worth noting that dietary changes alone may not be sufficient for all individuals with diabetes, and medication or insulin therapy may still be necessary. However, a healthy diet can be a powerful tool in managing diabetes and reducing the need for medication in some cases. It's crucial to consult with healthcare professionals to determine the most appropriate treatment plan for your specific situation.
Did you know that Visiting Nurse Association of Northern New Jersey (VNA) is the longest-serving VNA in the state of New Jersey? So we know a thing or two about helping seniors “age in place” to avoid hospitalization and nursing homes, and also what services people need to recover from illness and surgery at home. We suggest that you learn more about our home health care services and make a plan to age at home before you have a health emergency.
Medicare and supplemental insurance often do not cover all the care our patients and caregivers need. If you would like to help, please visit vnannj.org/donate or call VNA Foundation at 973-451-4148.
