I have been diagnosed with diabetes. Where can I find diabetic recipes?

Your best source for all information relating to diabetes is the American Diabetic Association: The Association offers a variety of cookbooks. If you need assistance with meal planning and have any specific questions about diabetes and diet, ask your physician to refer you to a Registered Dietitian. These health care professionals are best trained to assess your nutritional status and provide you with dietary guidance that meets both your medical needs and lifestyle. With a physician's referral, you may be more likely to get reimbursement from your health insurance provider. The Dietitian will talk to you about medications, exercise and diet history.
