Abstract :

Prevalence of Type 2 diabetes is majorly rooted to irregular eating pattern and physical inactivity. Dietary modification is one of the corner stone in the management of Type 2 diabetes. We studied nine hundred type 2 diabetics whose age varied between 40 and 70 years and for whom socio–economic background, biochemical parameters and anthropometric measurements were captured through interview schedule. The details of dietary pattern of the subjects were assessed through food frequency questionnaire and through 24 hour recall method. Vegetarians formed the majority of the selected population with rice and wheat consumed in large proportions. Cereals like Jowar, ragi, oats, Broken-wheat were never consumed. Majority had pasteurized milk, coconut, ghee, and sunflower oil as the medium for cooking. Twenty four hour recall method showed that most of the respondents had consumed way above therecommended allowances in terms of carbohydrate intake. The dietary pattern followed by type 2 diabetics was unbalanced and not within the recommended guidelines.So a need for a food based approach will serve as an effective strategy to improve the nutritional status and promote well-being of type 2 diabetics.
