Abstract

After a complete physical examination to identify possible complications, patients with non-insulin-dependent (type II) diabetes mellitus should be placed on an exercise program and a weight-control diet. Individualizing these regimens according to patients' health goals and personal interests enhances the chance of success. Exercise guidelines must be followed to ensure the patient's safety. Weight loss, however moderate, should be encouraged, and once a reasonable weight is obtained, a balanced maintenance diet should be recommended. Patience and persistence by physicians and patients can bring success in management of type II diabetes with non- pharmacologic means.
