Abstract

The prevalence of diabetes is on the increase worldwide, being one of the fastest growing international health emergencies in the 21st century. Diabetes that is not well managed can have significant impact on morbidity and mortality, including being a risk factor for stroke, renal dysfunction, leg amputation, cardiovascular diseases, loss of vision, and neuropathy. The economic costs of diabetes can also be quite profound through direct medical costs to individuals, families and healthcare systems, and loss of work and wages. Strategies for managing diabetes often include regular physical activity, smoking cessation, maintaining health body weight, and healthy diet. In addition, nutritional interventions in the management of diabetes may involve reduction of calories in diets, the use of diets with low glycaemic index, and increasing the fibre content of diets.
