Weight Loss

Your doctor or diabetes care team may suggest you try to lose some weight.

Losing weight can improve your blood glucose, blood pressure and cholesterol.

You don’t have to lose a lot of weight to start seeing results. Just losing 10-15 pounds can make a difference.

There are many types of weight loss plans to choose from. Even using the Plate Method for meal planning can help with weight loss.

If you’re having trouble losing weight, talk with your doctor or a registered dietitian.
