Medical nutritional therapy is an important component of diabetes management. The dietician offers nutritional advice to such patients based on their age, personal choices, lifestyle, and medical factors. Further, the dietitians also consider eating patterns, culture, beliefs, and food availability while developing customized nutritional strategies. Adequate nutrition is crucial in lowering blood sugar levels and weight management. In addition, adherence to a diabetes-friendly diet significantly lowers the likelihood of diabetic complications.

  • Prediabetes: Nutritional interventions play a crucial role in slowing the progression of prediabetes to diabetes. After being diagnosed with prediabetes (blood sugar level between 100 and 125 mg/dL), the person should consult with a dietitian expert to provide a diet chart to patients with abnormal blood sugar levels.
  • Type 1 Diabetes: In this condition, the pancreas of the patients produces no or very little insulin. In patients with type 1 diabetes, diet and insulin therapy play an important role in maintaining blood sugar levels and reducing the risk of diabetic complications.
  • Type 2 Diabetes: The cells become resistant to insulin in type 2 diabetes. Sugar in the blood is not utilized by the cells, leading to an increase in its level. Medical nutrition therapy assists in managing existing diabetes and lowers the rate of developing diabetic complications.
  • GDM: It is a type of diabetes that develops during pregnancy (gestational diabetes). It occurs due to the inability of the cells to use the sugar in the blood because of the hormones secreted from the placenta. After delivery, the symptoms of gestational diabetes usually disappear. However, careful control of the blood sugar level with medicines and nutrition is important to prevent complications for the baby and the mother.
