"Let’s face it, we all love food, right? As the Diabetes QI Coordinator at Shadyside Family Health Center, I get to talk about food, a lot. One of my major roles is to sit down with patients who have uncontrolled type 2 diabetes to discuss management strategies. The majority of the time, this conversation turns to food. Usually, I have the patient walk me through their typical eating day, so that we can discuss modifications such as adding vegetables at dinner time, or substituting the kind of carbohydrates they are eating at breakfast. However, I began to recognize a pattern in the conversations that I was having. Many of my patients reported they knew what they should be eating, but were not because they could not afford to do so."
