Dietary management of adults with type 2 diabetes: the nurse’s role

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The use of medications to treat type 2 diabetes may be prioritised at the expense of dietary approaches. Ongoing professional debate around best dietary approach confound treatment choices. Outcomes for people living with type 2 diabetes suggest the need for a change of focus. Type 2 diabetes is generally managed in primary care with nurses playing a key role in treatment. This article explores clinician attributed barriers and enablers to dietary advice, how they may be addressed, and the diets of choice. Practical dietary advice for nurses to use when discussing treatment options for people living with type 2 diabetes is outlined.
