How many carbs should someone with diabetes have in a day? Do all carbs impact blood sugar equally? How does exercise affect blood sugar? Are low-calorie sweeteners an option for people with diabetes to consume sweet foods?
To get the answers to these questions and many more, we invite you to join the International Food Information Council Foundation on Thursday, April 15th from 1:00-2:00 pm EDT for a Live Twitter chat on diabetes and health. Certified Diabetes Educator, book author, and dietitian Tami Ross will be on hand to discuss common questions about diabetes and nutrition, exercise and health.
