Introduction

´╗┐Unit 11 M2 Outline a two-day diet plan for two service users with specific dietary needs Diet plan for Bill Surrey 78yrs of age and suffering from type two diabetes Day one Breakfast ? Can include scrambled egg with two slices of wholemeal toast and a glass of orange juice. If necessary then a tsp of margarine can be added to the toast. This meal is well balanced as he will get enough carbohydrates from his wholemeal toast which will release energy slowly but not too many carbohydrates. He will also have a portion of one of his five a day with the glass of orange juice and some protein from his scrambled egg. Snack one ? This snack should be of fruit, preferably not an orange as he has already had orange juice and it is recommended to consume a rainbow of fruit and veg. Fruit is a great snack as it has necessary carbohydrates for energy along with key vitamins. Lunch ? A bowl of vegetable soup, an apple and a turkey sandwich of two slices of wholemeal bread, 1 ounce of turkey and a teaspoon of light mayonnaise. This will give him not too many carbohydrates but just enough. He is also getting 2 portions of his five a day. Snack two ? A fat-free yoghurt of 6oz with added vitamin D. ...read more.

As a sufferer of type 2 diabetes he needs to watch his carbohydrate, fat and sugar intake, and by sticking to this diet he will be doing just that. Sticking to this diet will mean that he is no longer harming his body or worsening his condition by consuming far too many carbohydrates than his body needs. The food contained in this diet is specifically chosen as they help to reduce the symptoms of type 2 diabetes like for example; * The fat-free yoghurt contains naturally high-quality protein and carbohydrates which make it excellent in slowing or even preventing an unhealthy rise in blood sugar. According to research having a diet high in calcium not just from yoghurt but from other calcium rich foods, can reduce the symptoms of type two diabetes. * Eggs are rich in quality protein but are still low in carbohydrates which make them a great choice of food to fill up and still control carbohydrate intake. * Non-starchy vegetables such as broccoli, spinach, mushrooms and peppers are all high-quality carbohydrates and will have a low impact on blood sugar. They are full of key vitamins and minerals and also contain a lot of fibre making them very beneficial and edible on a larger scale than you could with other foods. ...read more.

* Diabetic Neurotherapy, this is when nerve damage is directly caused by diabetes. It causes many side effects including numbness and pain in hands, feet and legs. It can also pose a health hazard, as sensitivity decreases the diabetic will lose sensitivity to pain or temperature. * Kidney disease is life threatening. It can occur when blood sugar levels sit above 130mg for a long period of time, affecting the body?s vascular system that is responsible in supplying healthy blood vessels that transport blood to and from the vital organs in the body including kidneys. Overtime the kidneys then become diseased. * Other effects include strokes, hearing problems, osteoporosis, Alzheimer?s disease, skin and mouth infections, erectile dysfunction, sores and infections that lead to the amputation of limbs My diet plan is also tailored to Bill, his weight and height. Sticking to this diet he is staying well within the limit of his daily 2255 calories a day. The diet takes into consideration that it is not easy to reduce the amount that he has been eating almost all his life, so it is packed full of food that will keep him fuller for longer and it consists of 3 regular meals and 3 snacks in between, so that he does not go through a space of time where he will be starved. Providing him with these fuller for longer foods at regular intervals will reduce the chance of him failing in making changes for life. ...read more.
