Free Presentation to Help Diabetics Control Carbs
DERBY, CT (May 27, 2014) –The Diabetes Education & Support Group at Griffin Hospital will host a free presentation to help diabetics manage their carbohydrate intake on Tuesday, June 10 at Griffin Hospital, 130 Division Street in Derby.
“Carbohydrate Counting: Skills Into Practice” will be presented at 6 p.m. in the hospital’s Dining Room.
Carbohydrate counting is a good self-management tool to use when trying to improve blood glucose levels, while still enjoying a wide variety of foods. Using the ‘gram counting’ method, this program will cover how to measure portions correctly to estimate total carbohydrates, how to count fiber, and what to do when dining out and eating combination foods. Record keeping and pattern management will also be discussed.
The Diabetes Education & Support Group meets September - June on the second Tuesday of each month to discuss the management of diabetes, its challenges, and day-to-day dietary concerns. All diabetics and their families are welcome to attend. No registration is required. For more information, call Mary Swansiger at 203.732.1137.
