eDietShop.com, the leading online purveyor of sugar-free and low-calorie foods, is adding a broad range of new resources for individuals with diabetes. The expanded site will offer columns and Q&As by health professionals, recipes and recipe makeovers to suit diabetic diets, health and medical product updates, and other new sections designed to turn www.eDietShop.com into a full-featured diabetes portal.

The expansion will leverage eDietShop.com’s status as the premier e-marketplace for sugar-free products, giving visitors a one-stop source for diabetes-related food supplies, basic medical and nutritional information on the disease, and links to the diabetes community.

“Our goal is to build on our strong food-product foundation to give people with diabetes as well as their friends and family a central resource where they can find reliable information on diabetes care and management, the latest health and medical product news, and related issues,” said Steve Bernard, President of eDietShop.com. “We want to provide a helpful support system for individuals with diabetes and their significant others.”

“eDietShop.com promises to become the Web’s most comprehensive resource for individuals with diabetes,” said Gail Becker, a registered dietitian and former food and nutrition manager for Weight Watchers International who is serving as a consultant to eDietShop.com and recruiting health professionals to assist the site. “No other site currently offers the wide spectrum of information that eDietShop has on the drawing board.”

Plans call for assembling a Diabetes Care Team consisting of leading authorities to supply the site with medical, nutritional and lifestyle information and respond to users’ questions. A new nutrition section will offer recipes, nutritionally appropriate makeovers of recipes submitted by readers, eating tips for special occasions such as restaurant meals, and webcasting of diabetes cooking classes.

The site will also add health updates, information about new diabetes-related medical products, research studies, a calendar of diabetes events, a way for users to locate certified diabetes educators in their area, and an expanded series of links directing users to diabetes organizations, sources for diabetes supplies and other sites. A special section for health professionals is also under development.
