March is National Nutrition Month
Nutrition Tips for Chronic Conditions:
If you have a chronic condition like hypertension or diabetes, a carefully planned diet can have a significant impact on managing your symptoms and improving your health. While many people understand the role diet plays in overall health, you can actually prevent and manage specific diseases by eating healthfully, as well. For instance, eating heart-healthy foods can help lower high blood pressure, which reduces the risk of both heart attack and stroke. Even if you do not have high blood pressure, eating a heart-healthy diet reduces your chances of heart disease in the future.
