Complaining that Hospitals Don't Serve Health Food...

...is valid. Click photos to enlarge.


Menus from the hospital where my mother is staying.

Syrup and margarine?????

Bleurgh.

No butter, salt or real mayonnaise. No fatty meat. No gluten-free options. Patients who need to follow a ketogenic diet have my sincere sympathy.

And people complain about McDonald's, where you're free to ramble on down the road if the menu doesn't suit you?

Well I suppose I may be able to pick out a few items? Special requests IF they are allowed, but probably not blueberries without the pancake, scrambled eggs no toast but somehow I don't think the hospital caterers would be best pleased. As Carole has indicated they do seem to like the syrup and margarine .. well I'd rather not.

Wishing you and your mother...

All the best Jan

They let my mother (a T2 diabetic) order high-carb food, then didn't give her her regular insulin shots. Then they recommended she lower her usual dose of insulin because of her normal A1C.

Maybe diabetes is out of control because health care providers have stopped trying to control it.
