Understanding food choices is an important part of staying well. If you have type 2 diabetes, or are at risk of developing diabetes, knowing what and how to eat is essential for maintaining good blood glucose levels and good health. If you have type 2 diabetes following a healthy diet and exercising can help you lose weight and make it easier for you to manage your condition. Losing weight and eating healthier can also have a profound effect on your mood, energy, and sense of wellbeing. It can also help prevent complications associated with diabetes like problems with your eyes, kidneys, feet and legs or heart. If you have prediabetes, losing weight and keeping it off could stop you from developing type 2 diabetes, and support long term good health and wellbeing
