HarborChase Explains Dining Out with Diabetes

Posted by HarborChase on Nov 1, 2018 8:00:00 AM

At HarborChase, our menus consist of chef-prepared meals, much like that of a fine restaurant. The difference between our meals and that of fine dining, is that we also strive to keep our residents’ dietary needs in mind. Being a senior with diabetes does not mean that you have to refrain from restaurant dining at all. In fact, if you order correctly, you may not even need to rely on medication to control your blood sugar. It is important to also consult with a doctor before removing medication from the equation. By minimizing your sugar intake and opting for healthier options, you can safely dine out with diabetes.
