EFAD ESDN Diabetes Statement on the Role of the Dietitian in the Prevention and Management of Gestational and Type 2 Diabetes
Dietitians play varied roles within diabetes teams. Dietitians are highly skilled educators and lifestyle coaches; supporting and empowering individuals with diabetes to make healthy food choices, lead an active lifestyle and meet their personal and medical, short and long term goals. Dietitians work as trained diabetes educators within diabetes self-management-education programs. They provide individualized therapy and counseling related to nutrition in both one-to-one and group-based settings with patients, taking into account personal and cultural beliefs, preferences, lifestyle and the willingness and ability of the person to change.
