Absolutely! Diabetics are at increased risk for developing many other diseases and should follow a strict diet of meat, fish, non-starchy vegetables, nuts, olives, seeds. Diabetics should moderate intake of fruits, grains (oats, wheat, etc), and baked goods. Diabetics should avoid pasta, cereals, sugar, and artificial sweeteners.
Absolutely. It should not be called a diet but healthy eating and healthy lifestyle. This is the cornestone of management of diabetes. Eating high vegetable diet, less processed foods, staying on your feet moving and managing stress all help with good control of the disease. Medications only can fine tune this.
Yes. A healthy one. We used to recommend a specific diet for diabetics. Now the diet we recommend is the one we recommend for nearly every one. Eat more fruits and vegetables, more grains, leaner cuts of meat, smaller portions of meat, more fish, and avoid sweets, refined carbohydrates etc. Avoid fast food and junk food. The american heart association diet is a good example of this.
ABSOLUTELY! Diet is the cornerstone of treating and in some cases even reversing diabetes. Diet is best individualized with professional help, but emphasizing whole foods & minimizing starches (sugars, grains, potatoes, sweeter fruits) is a good start.

Absolutely! Dietary management of diabetes can provide significant results and studies have shown that even just a 7% weight loss can reduce medication need. I encourage all my patients to start by just examining what they are currently eating and then make a plan to weekly improve dietary choices over 6-8 weeks until they arrive at a diet they are comfortable with and can manage daily.
Yes but... Every person with diabetes should see a registered dietitian and preferably one that is a certified diabetes educator (cde) for individualized meal planning. The "but" is this...What you will find is that a "diet" for someone with diabetes is truly just eating healthy, which we all should be doing regardless of whether we have diabetes or not!
