Guidelines

There is now extensive evidence on the optimal management of diabetes, offering the opportunity of improving the immediate and long-term quality of life of those living with the condition. Unfortunately such optimal management is not reaching many, perhaps the majority, of the people who could benefit. Reasons include the size and complexity of the evidence-base, and the complexity of diabetes care itself. One result is a lack of proven cost-effective resources for diabetes care. Another result is diversity of standards of clinical practice. Guidelines are part of the process which seeks to address those problems. IDF has produced a series of guidelines on different aspects of diabetes management, prevention and care. The new IDF Clinical Practice Recommendations for managing Type 2 Diabetes in Primary Care seek to summarise current evidence around optimal management of people with type 2 diabetes. It is intended to be a decision support tool for general practitioners, hospital based clinicians and other primary health care clinicians working in diabetes.

Evidence-based Nutrition Guidelines For The Prevention And Management Of Diabetes

Evidence-based Nutrition Guidelines For The Prevention And Management Of Diabetes

Evidence-based nutrition guidelines for the prevention and management of diabetes Evidence-based nutrition guidelines for the prevention and management of diabetes Our set of nutrition recommendations for adults with diabetes and those at risk of Type 2 diabetes have been written for healthcare professionals who are supporting them. 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. An individualised approach to diet taking into consideration the persons 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. These nutrition guidelines are relevant to people at risk of developing Type 2 diabetes and people with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. Special considerations have also been discussed for Gestational diabetes and Cystic Fibrosis- Related diabetes. Children are not included in the scope of these guidelines. The International Society of Paediatric and Adolescent Diabetes (ISPAD) clinical practice guidelines have been adopted by us. Wefirst published dietary recommendations for people with diabetes in 1982, with subsequent updates in 1992, 2003 and 2011. The previous evidence-based guidelines, published in 2011, had included studies published up to August 2010. The 2018 guidelines incorporate existing evidence and additional studies published between January 2010 and July 2017, although an exception was made to include a major UK study of diabetes remission, published in December 2017.

What's New In The Ada's Latest Diabetes Guidelines?

What's New In The Ada's Latest Diabetes Guidelines?

What's New in the ADA's Latest Diabetes Guidelines? This feature requires the newest version of Flash. You can download it here . Today I am going to discuss the American Diabetes Association (ADA) 2015 Standards of Care.[ 1 ] Each year a new Standards of Care is published and each year they change a little bit from the prior year and incorporate some of the newest and most interesting findings in the treatment of diabetes. This year they tackled the really big issue that was brought up by the change in the American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association (ACC/AHA) lipid treatment guidelines. The ADA now is publishing its own take on this issue. But I will discuss that later. First, I am just going to go through some of the more minor changes in the recommendations. First, the cut-off point for screening Asians in terms of their BMI is now 23 instead of 25, and this is because Asians develop diabetes or a risk for diabetes at a lower BMI than non-Asians. It is important to know that and to screen at a lower BMI. Second, they recommend that people be more physically active during the day, particularly people who are sitting for 90 or more minutes at a time. They recommend that people get up and move around, which I personally think is a very good idea because we all sit too much at work and therefore don't get enough daily activity. Third, they suggest that e-cigarettes have not been proven to be useful either in smoking cessation or as a safe alternative to cigarettes. So they do not suggest e-cigarettes as an alternative for smoking cessation or as an alternative to regular cigarettes. They also raise the diastolic blood pressure target from 80 to 90. And in terms of glycemia, they finally made a change that I have been hoping for for a while. The old pre-mea Continue reading >>

What The Governments Dietary Guidelines May Get Wrong

What The Governments Dietary Guidelines May Get Wrong

What the Governments Dietary Guidelines May Get Wrong Tom Vilsack, the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture, and Sylvia Burwell, the Secretary of Health and Human Services, offered few satisfying answers during a House hearing on the 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. Its hard not to feel a little sorry for Tom Vilsack and Sylvia Mathews Burwell. As the heads of the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Department of Health and Human Services, respectively, Vilsack and Burwell are responsible for issuing this years update to the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. The guidelines, which are expected to be published before the end of 2015, inform all of the federal governments nutrition initiatives and food-assistance programs, including school lunches and breakfasts. They are estimated to affect one in every four meals consumed in this country. By law, the guidelines must be revised every five years according to the preponderance of the scientific and medical knowledge about nutrition at that time.Vilsack and Burwell have the unenviable job of determining what constitutes knowledge ina field that has long been mired in ambiguity. The immensity of the challenge became even more apparent late last month, when Nina Teicholz, writing in the BMJ (formerly the British Medical Journal), published a blistering analysis of the scientific report that serves as the basis for the 2015 guidelines. The report, which was drawn up by the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee (D.G.A.C.), a panel of nutrition experts, recommendsplenty of low- or non-fat dairy, fruits, vegetables, whole grains, seafood, legumes, and nuts, and minimal red and processed meats, refined grains, and sweetened foods and drinks. But, according to Teicholz, the D.G.A.C. failed to adequately consider two relatively re Continue reading >>

Here Are The 2015 Dietary Guidelines | Time

Here Are The 2015 Dietary Guidelines | Time

The 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, which offer advice on healthy eating while also influencing countless federal nutrition and food programs, were released on Thursday. The new 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines come highly anticipated and are poised to be controversial. During the open-comment period, an unprecedented number of remarks were registered with the federal government, and experts in the fields of human health and nutrition are expected to have varying reactions to the new recommendations. Overall, the 2015 Guidelines advise Americans to follow an eating pattern that includes a variety of fruits and vegetables, grains (at least half of which should be whole), a variety of proteins (including lean meats, seafood, nuts), and oils. Americans will be familiar with the majority of our findings, Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell said in call with reporters. The recommendations are jointly released every five years by the HHS and U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). The guidelines also recommend Americans stay below a specific cap on saturated fats and trans fats, added sugars, and sodium. Specifically, the guidelines say Americans should consume less than 10% of their daily calories from added sugarsthe cap on sugar is a first for the guidelinesas well as less than 10% of calories per day from saturated fats, and less than 2,300 milligrams (mg) per day of sodium. The guidelines also continue to recommend low- and no-fat dairy products, which some critics contend is outdated advice. No limit is explicitly recommended for the consumption of red meat or processed meat, despite recent reports that these foods have been strongly linked to health problems, including heart disease and cancer and despite the advice of the Guidelines Adv Continue reading >>

The American Diabetes Association Commends The Release Of The 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines For Americans To Promote Healthier Living

The American Diabetes Association Commends the Release of the 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans to Promote Healthier Living The American Diabetes Association is pleased with overarching guidelines in the current edition that encourage following healthy eating patterns and choosing a variety of nutrient-dense foodsincluding vegetables, fruits, whole grains, fat-free or low-fat dairy, a variety of protein foods and oilsin recommended amounts. We are also pleased to see the Guidelines emphasize strategies that help Americans shift to healthier food and beverage choices and support healthy eating patterns for all. These recommendations are important to the health of all Americans, including the nearly 30 million Americans with diabetes and 86 million Americans with prediabetes. It is the position of the Association that there is not a "one-size-fits-all" eating pattern for individuals with diabetes, per our 2013 Nutrition Therapy Recommendations for the Management of Adults With Diabetes . Healthful eating patterns, emphasizing a variety of nutrient-dense foods in appropriate portion sizes, are key in assisting individuals with diabetes to improve their overall health, and specifically to attain individualized glycemic, blood pressure and lipid goals; achieve and maintain body weight goals; and delay or prevent complications of diabetes. Many of the recommendations in the updated Guidelines are consistent with the previous edition, released in 2010. However, the addition of a specific limit on consumption of added sugars is noteworthy. To achieve healthy eating patterns within calorie limits, the updated Guidelines recommend that individuals consume less than 10 percent of calories per day from added sugars. The Association supports the need for individuals to cho Continue reading >>

20152020 Dietary Guidelines: How They Can Work For You

20152020 Dietary Guidelines: How They Can Work for You Its a brand new year a time for changes, new beginnings, and setting goals for yourself. And with the new year come the new 20152020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, released last week. In this newly revised edition of the recommendations, there are some changes that are worth knowing about, especially if you have diabetes and/or are aiming to reach a healthier weight. The Dietary Guidelines for Americans are released every five years. Theyre developed by the U.S. Departments of Health and Human Services (HHS) and Agriculture (USDA). And while you may not give much thought to these guidelines, theyre used to promote overall health and prevent (not treat) chronic diseases in the U.S. (a rather lofty goal). More specifically, the Dietary Guidelines help to shape federal policies and programs related to food, nutrition, and health, such as the National School Lunch program. Frankly, most people probably never use or think about the Dietary Guidelines. And given the numerous controversies about nutrition in general, a lot of people (including those in the nutrition and health-care fields) dont agree with them or dismiss them as being irrelevant or downright wrong. If, however, you have an interest in learning what theyre all about and perhaps how they might help you make some healthy lifestyle changes, here are some takeaways that may be of interest: Limit sugar. OK, this is something that seems so obvious, and youre likely doing this already. But its a big deal for these guidelines, which urge us to limit our intake of added sugars to no more than 10% of our daily calories. So if you consume 2,000 calories a day, 10% of those calories from sugar translates into roughly 50 grams of sugar. Implications: A high sugar in Continue reading >>

Dietary Guidelines For Diabetes

Dietary Guidelines For Diabetes

What Other Things Can I Do to Improve My Healthy Eating? Many people think that having diabetes requires a special diet. The diabetes diet, however, is a healthy, enjoyable one, and suitable for the entire family. Learning what you can eat and how different foods affect your body is important. Although food is not the only factor that raises glucose, your food choices have a significant impact on your glucose, cholesterol, blood pressure and, of course, your overall health. This handout covers the basic principles of good nutrition. For a tailored plan, consult a dietitian-certified diabetes educator, or call the Center for Diabetes Services at (415) 600-0506. Carbohydrate turns into glucose. Sugars and starches are the carbohydrates in our diet. These foods are our main source of energy. Too much carbohydrate in the diet can raise your blood glucose levels too high. It is important to limit your total carbohydrate intake at each meal. What are Some Examples of Foods that Contain Carbohydrate? Rice, fruits, pretzels/popcorn, lentils, fruit juices, pasta/noodles, dried beans, sugar/honey, crackers, milk, desserts, bread, yogurt, sodas, cereals. These vegetables are starchy and raise blood glucose: potato, yams, peas, corn, lima beans. Note: High fiber food choices are encouraged (for example, whole grain breads and cereals; fresh fruits and vegetables; beans and legumes). Include carbohydrate in every meal and snack. Be sure to spread your carbohydrate intake evenly throughout the day. Do not skip meals. Even distribution of food helps prevent high and low blood glucose. Eat 3 meals a day, plus snacks as needed. Eating at regular intervals helps control hunger and prevents overeating at the next meal. Time your food intake to the action of your diabetes medication. What Continue reading >>

The 20152020 Dietary Guidelines - Today's Dietitian Magazine

Experts tell Today's Dietitian what they think about them and how they could impact the health of Americans. When the 20152020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans were released on January 7, there were some notable changes. Out are recommended limits on dietary cholesterol. In are recommended curbs on added sugars and updated guidance on sodium intake. Overall, there's a greater focus on dietary patterns as opposed to specific foods and food groups. In addition to offering guidance to the general public and health care professionals, the guidelines are used by federally funded programs such as the National School Lunch Program and WIC to help determine the types of foods, serving sizes, and menus that will be offered. The guidelines' recommendations also have been incorporated into the newly revised USDA Choose MyPlate program. Updated every five years as a joint report of the US Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) and the USDA, the stated goal of the guidelines is to "encourage Americans to adopt a series of science-based recommendations to improve how they eat to reduce obesity and prevent chronic diseases like type 2 diabetes, hypertension, and heart disease."1 With obesity affecting more than one-third of American adults78.6 million peopleand obesity-related diseases ranking among the leading causes of death in the United States,2 it stands to reason that the guidelines should continue to focus on disease prevention. Whether they go far enough in advancing this cause has generated a spirited debate among health care experts. One change that nearly everyone agrees is beneficial is the recommendation that added sugars be limited to less than 10% of a person's total daily caloric intake.3 This recommendation doesn't include naturally occurring sugars. Although pe Continue reading >>

Although dietary recommendations for managing diabetes have changed greatly over the centuries, recommended protein intake has remained relatively constant. Currently, recommendations for protein intake are based on individual assessment and the consideration of other health issues and implications, such as the extent of glycemic control, the presence of kidney disease, overweight and obesity, and the age of the patient. Two common misconceptions about dietary protein in diabetes management are that a certain amount of the protein consumed is converted into blood glucose and that consuming too much protein can lead to diabetic kidney disease. These misconceptions have been disproven. For many people with type 2 diabetes, aiming for 2030% of total energy intake as protein is the goal. Exceptions may be for those individuals with impaired renal function. A protein intake of this amount can be beneficial by improving glycemic control, aiding in satiety and preservation of lean body mass during weight loss in those with both diabetes and prediabetes, and Continue reading >>
