Abstract

Fifteen diabetic patients with problems related to poor dietary adherence, i.e., obesity, hyperlipoproteinemia, high levels of glycosylated haemoglobin (HbA1C), were studied before and after the introduction of a dietary clinic to a general practice: none of these patients attend hospital for care of their diabetes. There was high patient acceptance of the offer of local dietary advice. Definite improvement in weight and hypertriglyceridemia was shown with some evidence also of reduced HbA1C. Serum cholesterol levels were unchanged.
