Relation of dietary barriers in patients with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus to different modes of treatment

Journal of the American Dietetic Association 92(9): 1129-1131
Relation of dietary barriers in patients with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus to different modes of treatment
Persons with diabetes perceive diet as one of the major obstacles of everyday life. Barriers related to diet concern areas of human functioning such as feelings of bodily discomfort, hunger, or sickness; they can also be associated with financial costs. Dietary barriers are the result of restrictions in food choice or of the required regularity of eating. Social dietary barriers occur while eating with other people; they also are caused by inadequate food offerings. The perception of dietary barriers depends on factors such as the type of diabetes and sex, age, body mass index, and social and educational level. Rarely do the barriers vary with increasing duration of diabetes. Little is known about the relationship of dietary barriers to different modes of therapy for insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM). For example, are dietary barriers less prevalent with so-called intensive insulin therapy than with traditional therapy for IDDM?
