Nutrition Month  3

Blog Special: Facebook LIVE on Diabetes


It's March! And it's National Nutrition Month! To celebrate, join us at noon CST for mini discussions throughout the month on Facebook LIVE. Part 4 will talk about diabetes. If you miss the live event, watch the recording, and check back on this blog post for updates from viewer questions.  Thanks so much to our guest co-host Ginny Kerwin, registered dietitian with Joslin Diabetes Center in Decatur.
We are doing a Q&A session.  See two of the questions here.  Check into the live stream for answers to other questions, and ask your own!

What is A1c?

A1c and stands for hemoglobin A1C or glycated hemoglobin. It shows the amount of glucose attached to red blood cells and is a useful measure of average blood glucose over around 3 months.

If you have diabetes, who is another healthcare provider you may want to see besides your medical doctor?

Dentists, doctors specializing in eye or foot care, and dietitians are just some of the healthcare providers who help you manage and track your diabetes.
