Intensive nurse diet coaching improves glycaemic control

  • Comment

Glycaemic control in newly diagnosed type 2 diabetes patients can be improved with intensive diet coaching by a nurse, according to a UK study of 593 patients.

After six months, researchers found glycaemic control had worsened in patients assigned to usual care – initial dietary consultation and follow-up every six months.

However it had improved in those assigned to an intensive diet intervention – dietary consultation every three months with monthly nurse support.
