Name ________________ FN 30300 PROJECT 3 Fall 2010 Diabetes Module I. What is Diabetes? Submit a typed report 3 to 5 pages in length (double spaced, font size 12) describing the types of diabetes, health implications or potential complications of diabetes, the treatment(s) for the disease, and the role of nutrition in the treatment. Emphasis should be placed on the role of nutrition . Also include a works cited page listing at least 5 references. Use the MLA format. II. Develop an Eating Plan An eating plan for an individual with diabetes strives to keep the carbohydrate content at meals consistent on a daily basis. For example, breakfast on Monday should contain the same amount of carbohydrate as breakfast on Wednesday. Individuals with diabetes need to be aware of which foods in their diet supply carbohydrate. In the past, exchange lists have been used for developing meal patterns for specific calorie levels. A table (Table 2.5) illustrating the exchange lists can be found in your text on page 70. On page 71, an example of a one-day meal plan for 2,600 calories is shown. A meal plan based on exchanges specifies the number of servings of fruits, vegetables, milk, breads, meats and fats to have at each meal. The current trend in diabetes education is to use a more liberal type meal plan that involves counting "carbohydrate choices." It is referred to as the consistent carbohydrate diet. A meal plan is developed that lists the number of carbohydrate choices to have at each meal plus the amount of meat, fats, and vegetables to include. A "carbohydrate choice" is equivalent to a bread, fruit or milk serving from the exchange lists. A "carbohydrate choice" contains 12 to 15 grams of carbohydrate. Listed below is a sample meal plan for breakfast counting carbohydrate choices. Breakfast: 4 Carbohydrate choices - 1/2 cup orange juice 3/4 cup Corn Flakes 1 slice whole wheat bread (toasted) 1 cup fat-free milk 1 ounce meat - 1 scrambled egg 0 serving vegetables - 1 serving fat - 1 teaspoon margarine
