Diabetes mellitus, Type 2, diet
Diabetes Mellitus is a rapidly growing epidemic in today’s society. In 2000, 2.8% (171 million) of the world had this diagnosis. In 2030, it is expected to increase to 4.4% (366 million). There is an increased need for research and implementation in the nursing field to manage diabetic symptoms. Diabetes mellitus type 2 is a cellular change causing insulin to be resistant to the cells which leads to a build up of glucose. Multiple medical complications can result from the diagnosis of diabetes mellitus type 2. The purpose of this study is to determine which diabetic diet is more effective in reducing the symptoms of diabetes mellitus type 2 patients: carbohydrate counting or calorie restricted diets.
