Dining out can be difficult for diabetics whose dietary choices are limited compared to healthy people. However, it is almost impossible to eat only at home in modern society, so it is essential to learn and practice how to eat well. As mentioned above, the nutrition labeling system is being applied and extended not only to processed foods, but also to restaurants, and there are many restaurants that present calories and major nutrients of their food options, although the nutrient names can differ depending on location. Therefore, diabetes patients can enjoy eating out if they can check the nutritional information, decide a menu to suit their nutritional needs, and limit the amount of food eaten. For sugar reduction, it is important to limit added sugars, particularly by selecting proper beverages. It should not be forgotten that sodium intake is easy to fall into the temptation to eat sugars as a compensation for salty taste and can cause complications such as hypertension. Also, it is advisable for diabetics to visit restaurants offering low-salt options.
