Practice guidelines for nutrition care by dietetics practitioners for outpatients with non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus: consensus statement

J Am Diet Assoc. 1992 Sep;92(9):1136-9.


In summary, nutrition practice guidelines for dietitians who provide outpatient care for persons with NIDDM provide a roadmap for nutrition care that allows for consistency in individualized care. A field test that compares care according to practice guidelines with usual or basic care can provide evidence, based on medical, education/behavior, and cost outcomes, that practice guidelines are not only reasonable and realistic but also effective.
