Document Abstract:
A multi-disciplinary team approach is required for proper management of diabetes mellitus, including education, self-management skills training and advice regarding exercise and diet. Dietary treatment is notoriously difficult, due to major differences in insulin resistance, body size and insulin secretion. Good glycaemic control is unlikely to be achieved when diet is neglected. This paper will focus on the nutritional aspects of the treatment of diabetes mellitus.
