Abstract


We evaluated in dynamics, during 2002 – 2016, the diet and lifestyle habits of patients suffering from type 1 and 2 diabetes, using a complex questionnaire. We also compared the values of the main important laboratory results regarding carbohydrate metabolic balance and lipidic status (glycated hemoglobin and glycemic profile, serum total cholesterol, HDL-cholesterol and triglycerides). Several unhealthy habits can be observed in the majority of the patients, like sedentarism, which showed increasing percentage in type 2 diabetic patients,  and can represent a factor that contributed to the high number of overweight and obese individuals in this group. The level of stress exposure shows increasing tendency during the trial. We observed a decrease in the number of diabetic patients consuming dietary supplements. Monitoring the carbohydrate metabolic balance by measuring the glycated hemoglobin value has been improved during the study.
