STATEMENT REGARDING DIET THERAPY FROM THE AMERICAN DIABETES ASSOCIATION
The Committee on Education of the American Diabetes Association undertook the preparation of a booklet to provide physicians with a concise and simple guide to the diagnosis and treatment of diabetes. This booklet is now being printed, with the title "Diabetes—A Guidebook for the Physician," and will be available for distribution to physicians throughout the United States and elsewhere.The section on diet was prepared jointly with a committee of the American Dietetic Association with the cooperative assistance of the Diabetes Section of the United States Public Health Service. Several objectives were kept in mind—to save time for the busy doctor, to spare him the calculations which so often appear formidable, to simplify the instruction of patients and, finally, to unify in some measure the tables of food values and methods of meal planning which vary throughout the country.The cooperating organizations are now reporting the following work.
