    Omega-3s & Diabetes

    The American Diabetes Association recommends eating 2-3 servings of non-fried fish per week for dietary omega-3 fatty acids.  Seafood contains omega-3 fatty acids that are considered a good type of fat because of the benefits they provide.  Omega-3 benefits include:
    • reduction of blood triglyceride levels,
    • prevention of blood clotting (which can cause blood vessels to narrow and ultimately become blocked),
    • possible reduction of blood pressure, and
    • food sources are low in saturated fat.
    Strive to eat seafood 2-3 times per week!
