[Diabetic diet 2000].

[Article in German]


Diabetes diet in the year 2000 consists essentially of carbohydrates. 50% to 60% of the total caloric intake has to be taken in form of carbohydrate. Slowly metabolised forms of carbohydrate should be preferred. Fat and proteins should not exceed more than 20% of the respective total caloric intake. Vegetable fats should be preferred compared to animal fats. Patients with type 2 diabetes who should loose weight have to be extremely careful regarding the fat intake. Insulin-dependent diabetics can correct mistakes in the carbohydrate intake by injecting fast insulins provided that they have in-depth knowledge of the mode of action of insulin and dietary experience.
