Nutrition Website to Fight Juvenile Diabetes

The Juvenile Diabetes Center of the Ziv Medical Center in Tzfat will join the Lightline (Kav Or) organization Tuesday in launching a new internet site to help those suffering from the disease to focus on correct nutrition. The launch is in conjunction with a conference on the disease, and a number of computers will be set up to display the site.

The site is presented as a virtual amusement park with a number of friendly, visual and colorful elements that illustrate or demonstrate sugar balance and the use of insulin, in addition to nutrition. The site is more practice oriented than theory oriented, with interactive elements designed to get the user to the information, which includes frequently-asked questions about challenging situations. One of these elements is a carbohydrate calculator.
