ISDI supports the World Diabetes Day!

For hospitalised patients with diabetes, poor glucose control leads to adverse health outcomes while good control improves patients’ outcomes and cuts the cost of care.  Based on the evidence of clinical, health and economic outcomes, the International Special Dietary Food Industries (ISDI) endorses the use of diabetes-specific formulas (DSF) to help achieve and maintain glycaemic control, improve recovery, and reduce the cost of care.

ISDI considers it essential to share this endorsement on the occasion of World Diabetes Day 2019, and to recall the publication of its position statement (read the full document here).
