Diabetes Treatment & Diet • Blood glucose (BG) control is the foundation of treatment for diabetes mellitus. High BG increases the risk of infections during illness, slows healing, and can lead to long-term complications. • Blood glucose levels are often elevated during illness and after injury because of stress. Many patients with diabetes come to the hospital with high BG levels, or their BG levels become elevated during hospitalization. Certain medications and decreased physical activity during hospital stay contribute to elevated BG levels. • The American Diabetes Association recommends that a consistent carbohydrate (CHO) diet be provided to patients with diabetes during hospitalization. The Consistent CHO diet doesn’t have a specific calorie level. Instead, it provides a specific amount of CHO. • “Calorie level diabetic diets” are no longer recommended for patients during hospitalization. VUH is phasing out “calorie level diabetic diets.” • The diet order for patients with diabetes in VUH (except on 4 East) is “Diabetic Diet– Consistent CHO.” • On 4 East, a slightly different version of the diet is provided. This diet is known as “the OB Diabetic Diet.”
