Prescription of diabetic diets in the 1980s.

Abstract

A method is described to aid the prescription of diabetic diets, derived from newly available data for computation of metabolic rates of individuals. Absolute daily amounts of the main nutrients required to formulate a patient's diet are obtained from simple nomograms based on the patient's height and activity level. This system is more accurate and more flexible than currently accepted methods of dietary assessment and should lead to improved use of dietetic resources.
