Amongst the elderly population, type 2 diabetes is a growing problem, and a larger proportion of newly diagnosed diabetics are older (> 60 years). 1 in 5 elderly suffers from diabetes. Elderly people are often more frail and susceptible to illness. This can mean diabetes-related complications are harder to manage. Furthermore, exercise and adopting a strict diet can be more difficult for the elderly people, and problems can arise in these areas. Common diabetic micro vascular complications include retinopathy, nephropathy and neuropathy.
A key goal of diabetes management is to prevent complications because, over time, having an uncontrolled blood sugar level can damage the heart, blood vessels, eyes, kidneys, and nerves. Healthy eating is essential to prevent long-term complications of diabetes. It is therefore important for the diabetic elderly to practice healthy eating habits in the management of blood sugar level, yet get sufficient amount of nutrients for optimal health.
