Food insecurity: What does it mean to people with diabetes?
Until recently, food insecurity has been a largely invisible problem among people with diabetes although it has a profound effect upon health and quality of life. Changes at the societal level, including adequate funding to support and promote economic self-sufficiency and increased use of food assistance programmes, will improve food security. Health professionals can also improve outcomes in food insecure people with diabetes by incorporating strategies directed at those at risk into their everyday clinical practice.
