(HONESDALE, August 11, 2006)… Are you a late-night eater? If you have diabetes, eating large amounts of food at night—more than one-quarter of your daily calories— may be raising your risk of serious complications, such as heart disease and kidney dysfunction. That’s the finding of a new study that appears in the latest edition of the journal Diabetes Care.
It’s also one of many “food facts” you can learn about from Carol Kneier’s “Living Well With Diabetes” class. Kneier, who has a Masters in Science, is a registered dietitian and certified diabetes educator. For more than ten years, she and Wayne Memorial Hospital’s Nutrition Services Department, have been offering diabetes education classes for diabetics and their families.
In addition to basics such as menu planning and label reading, Kneier will explain the disease itself—what is diabetes, what are the medications used to control it, how does a patient monitor his or her “sugar” level—along with the benefits of exercise and “good care from head to toe.”
