Evidence-based nutritional guidelines for the prevention and management of diabetes - March 2018
The updated evidence-based nutritional guidelines for the prevention and management of diabetes have just been published...
According to Diabetes UK, a key strategy applied in these current guidelines was to formulate recommendations from the available evidence highlighting the importance of foods, rather than focusing on individual nutrients, wherever possible.
The guidelines recommend:
- An individualised approach to diet taking into consideration the person’s personal and cultural preferences
- People eat more of certain foods such as vegetables, fruits, wholegrains, fish, nuts and pulses
- People eat less red and processed meat, refined carbohydrates and sugar sweetened beverages.
