The complexity of diabetes and its comorbidities present challenges to healthcare professionals (HCPs). Consequently, when providing nutritional support via tube feeding to people with diabetes and a functional gastrointestinal tract, HCPs have to adopt various strategies in order to manage these individuals effectively. This study aimed to determine the prevalence of diabetes in people living in Lewisham, Southwark and Lambeth PCTs who were receiving home enteral tube feeding. Current care guidelines were then reviewed in light of the results, and the need for alternative approaches to management protocols was assessed. The implications for clinical practice are discussed and recommendations to improve practice are made.
