Providing adequate nutritional intake to older people with T2D poses a challenge to health care professionals in that it is important to meet micronutrient needs despite decreased macronutrient demands, whilst maintaining glycaemic control. An important consideration regarding nutrition in T2D is monitoring carbohydrate and caloric intake in order to avoid postprandial glucose excursions and limit complications associated with hyperglycaemia.
