A study of diet planning in diabetes using carbohydrate count


Author(s): Dr. Anubhav Gupta and Dr. Kanika Vij

Abstract: Compared to fats and proteins, carbohydrates have the greatest impact on blood sugar except for dietary fibre, which is not digestible. According to the recent data of WHO there will be 333 million people with DM in the year 2030. To reduce the risk of diabetes micro vascular complications the effect of intensive insulin treatment of patients aiming to reduce A1C levels has shown effective results. Too much insulin or inadequate food intake lead to hypoglycaemia and potentially loss of consciousness and seizures. Considering these facts American Diabetes Association [ADA] emphasizes the importance of good glycaemic control to prevent chronic diabetic complications and suggest that changes in diet compositions of patients with DM are a relevant strategy to achieve an appropriate metabolic control. Carbohydrate Counting offers variability of food choices with potential for improving glycaemic control. This study puts in an effort to evaluate the influence of nutrition intervention on metabolic parameters in patients with type 2 DM taking insulin according to carbohydrate counting method
