Our Story:
From the desk of Christine Carlson (Registered Dietitian, Certified Diabetes Educator, GlucoMenu® Nutrition Director)...
When my dad was first diagnosed with type 2 diabetes his doctor gave him a pamplet, some medication, and was told to lose weight.  That was it.  My father was very overwhelmed about what to eat and how to control his blood sugar. 

Carbohydrates, sugar, and reading food labels confused my dad and he wondered how often & what he should eat to control his diabetes.  My father lives in another city far away, and although I could answer some questions over the phone, it is best to sit down one on one with patients when initially diagnosed.  I recommended a visit to a Certified Diabetes Educator (CDE) and Registered Dietitian (RD) in his home town. 

My father attended a class taught by a CDE & Registered Nurse (RN) to help him understand treatment of diabetes.  He received a glucometer to help monitor blood glucose levels.  I helped him with carbohydrate counting, portion sizes, food choices, fiber, sodium & cholesterol concerns, and ultimately a meal plan for diabetes.  My dad still occasionally calls with questions but is currently under good control. 

My grandfather also had type 2 diabetes.  Research indicates family history of diabetes increases risk.  Because of my family history with diabetes, I have a vested interest in the treatment and prevention of the disorder.

When my dad was diagnosed he had a lot of questions and wondered if there was an Internet service offering complete menus where he could simply follow along.  I began to think how nice it would be to have a complete menu service to tell my father about.  A menu service to guide newly diagnosed and to offer new ideas for those who have been treating their diabetes for awhile.  This is how I got the idea for GlucoMenu®
