Diabetics ...to make it a little easier choosing your meal
* The Lao do not use much oil or sugar in their cooking so a lot of their food is diabetic friendly.
* The menu items that we recommend below are based on experience as a family member is Type 2 diabetic.
However, please note that they are recommendations only, because what a diabetic person eats depends on so
many different things.
Note: If you are diabetic and a vegetarian, make sure you check with the vegetarian section of the menu (yellow section) for the dishes that can be cooked with tofu.
Here are a few of the dishes that are suitable for diabetics. Please check the blue section of the menu for a complete list of suggestions.
