2 Nutritional Intervention Help patient to make appropriate food choices to: - reduce risk - Improve glycaemic control - quality of life. Advice needs to be based on scientific evidence and then tailored specifically for the individual, taking into account their personal and cultural preferences, beliefs, lifestyle and the change that the individual is willing and able to make.

3 No magic wand

4 Guidance Used Evidence-based nutrition guidelines for the prevention and management of diabetes – May 2011, Diabetes UK Hertfordshire Diabetes Clinical Guidelines – July 2010 NICE Guidance GC66 – Type 2 Diabetes NICE Guidance GC15 – Type 1 Diabetes Diabetes UK

5 Management & Models Everyone with diabetes should receive individual, ongoing nutritional advice from a registered dietitian (A) All people with diabetes should be offered structured education at the time of diagnosis with an annual follow-up (A) Education should involve a person-centred approach & a variety of learning styles (A)

6 TYPE 1 Foods that have a direct impact on BGLs and how to identify them (carbohydrate is the main nutritional consideration for glycaemic control) Carbohydrate awareness and/or counting Count the carbs to either match the insulin (fixed dose) OR adjust the insulin to match the carbs (basal bolus/MDI) Awareness of: Exercise, Sickness, Alcohol and snacking etc. General healthy eating advice in line with the population DAFNE course ( Dose Adjusting For Normal Eating)

7 Type 2 – Glycaemic control Weight management should be the primary nutritional strategy in managing blood glucose (BG) in people who are overweight or obese Focus should be on total energy intake rather than the source of the energy in the diet The total amount of carbohydrate consumed is a strong predictor of glycaemic response & monitoring total carb intake is a key strategy in achieving glycaemic control Physical activity!! & ?Lower GI food choices

8 Type 2 – CVD (blood lipids & blood pressure) Saturated Fats & Trans fats Plant sterols & stanols Reduce sodium Mediterranean style diet Oily fish Weight loss Exercise (aerobic)

9 Type 2 – Practical 2 Pronged Approach Educate about food/ food groups that have a direct impact on blood glucose levels Identifying carbs & understanding their relationship to glucose - Menus, diet history - Food & carb diary - Food pictures & models - Games Educate about foods/ diet types that will have a long term impact on BGLs (abdominal obesity) Identifying high calorie & high fat foods/drinks - Diet history - Calorie counting - Food portion pictures - Games
