Deconstructing Diabetes simplifies the dietary advice for people with diabetes.

Deconstructing Diabetes

Focus areas

Gestational diabetes Type 1 diabetes Type 2 diabetes Lifestyle Meal plans Pregnancy support

A specialised diabetes dietitian will conduct a detailed assessment of your diabetes, medications, time since you were diagnosed, your goals, expectations and lifestyle factors (diet and exercise).

This includes assessment of your usual food intake (amounts and types of foods), and your eating behaviour (appetite, where, and why you eat).

This enables us to identify the important issues that need to be considered, including what information you need to understand, and what dietary changes need to be made to improve your health.

Structured meal plans and goals are then defined, and advice tailored at review sessions to keep you on track towards your goals.

This gives you the confidence to help control your diabetes.

Our logo portrays what we are about. The circular shape is the chemical structure of a glucose molecule, or sugar, in it's simplest form.

The "D" in the word "Diabetes" is breaking away, symbolising deconstruction.

That's our philosophy, deconstructing dietary advice into it's simplest form.

Diabetes & Diet

It's often said that one size doesn't fit all, and this is true for diet and diabetes.

The type of diabetes you have, how long you've had it for, the medications you may take to help control blood glucose levels, your food preferences and lifestyle will all affect the diet advice you should follow.

Type 2 Diabetes

Genetics, diet, and lifestyle contribute to the risk of developing diabetes, and the progression (or lack of progression or worsening) of the disease.

High blood glucose levels in Type 2 Diabetes may be due to a number of factors, including age, insulin resistance, residual pancreatic function, glucose production by the liver, the foods eaten, and activity.

The food we eat, the amount and type of exercise we do, and the amount of sitting and incidental activity we do will all affect blood glucose levels, and influence the progression of the disease.

As we get older our blood glucose levels rise.

Type 1 Diabetes

Type 1 Diabetes is where the pancreas does not produce insulin. Insulin then needs to be administered by the form of an injection or insulin pump.

Depending on the time since you were diagnosed, the type of insulin regime (basal, mixed insulin, basal - bolus, or insulin pump) you are on, your dietary advice and intake may vary.

Gestational Diabetes. What to eat, how much to eat, when to eat

Gestational Diabetes is high blood glucose levels occurring in pregnancy.

Regular blood glucose monitoring needs to be conducted, and dietary considerations include the affect on blood glucose levels, appropriate weight gain, and also maintaining nutritional adequacy during this time.

What is Pre-Diabetes?

Our blood glucose levels are usually kept within a normal range. Diabetes is when these levels go too high. Pre-diabetes is when blood glucose levels are not too high to be categorised as diabetes, but higher than normal. This is sometimes referred to as "borderline diabetes". Pre-diabetes can also be thought of as a stepping stone between normal blood glucose and developing diabetes.
