Diabetes program tackles questions about cultural food
Do you order a burrito or a chimichanga? What do you do with the chips and salsa? How do you get through a Chinese buffet? Do you eat the bread sticks at an Italian restaurant?
Those are all questions patients of diabetes ask themselves on a regular basis.
The Diabetes Community Care program at Woodwinds Hospital hosted a session last week exploring foods from different cultures and how to adjust insulin intake when eating unfamiliar ingredients.
