Diet and Lifestyle advice is the cornerstone treatment in the management of diabetes.
It essential to ensure all patients with diabetes receive nutrition and lifestyle advice early on in diagnosis.
The 'First Line Diet Advice' sheet has been created by the specialist dietitians at York Hospital and is designed to be used by GP's and practise nurses to ensure consistent evidence based nutritional messages are being delivered across the Vale of York.
There is also a link to the 'EatWell Plate' which is designed to guide people on healthy eating principles. http://www.nhs.uk/Livewell/Goodfood/Pages/eatwell-plate.aspx
This site also includes links for your own reference to 'Evidence Based Nutritional Guidance on the Prevention and Management of Diabetes'.
