Nutritional Management of Diabetes Mellitus

edited by Gary Frost,
Anne Dornhorst
and Robert Moses


Since the first descriptions of diabetes mellitus by the Ancient Greeks, diet has played a major role in the management of this disease. This has been reinforced over the last 20 years by guidelines on the management of diabetes, which continue to recognise that many people living with diabetes are able to manage their diabetes through their diet. There are few texts that are totally focused on the nutritional management of this condition.

Nutritional Management of Diabetes Mellitus discusses the nutritional recommendations for control of blood sugar levels through regulation of food intake. It also highlights the importance of exercise for short and long-term benefits for people with diabetes, particularly if complicated by obesity.

Features:

  • Nutritional management for diabetic children, elderly and pregnant women
  • The relationship with alcohol
  • The role of carbohydrate in the managment of diabetes
  • Counselling in diabetes

This guide provides the necessary knowledge for healthcare professionals to adapt the diabetic diet around the medical and individual needs and constraints of the patient.

Nutritional Management of Diabetes Mellitus is an invaluable resource for dietitians, diabetes specialist nurses and diabetes teams as well as other health care professionals.
