Dietary Treatment of Diabetes


The National Board of Health and Welfare needs updated scientific health technology Assessment in the area Dietary Treatment of Diabetes and has therefore asked SBU to update previous evaluations in the area.


The aim of the project is to investigate, through a systematic review, how different foods affect the blood sugar of diabetics. Keeping blood sugar at a stable and low level reduces the risk of sequelae and injuries, in some cases acute and life threatening. A stable blood sugar level is also good for avoiding long-term damage such as nerve and kidney damage as well as eye complications.
