Aims: Type 2 diabetes mellitus is a metabolism disease which is seen frequently among adult population in Turkey. The aim of this study was to determine the medical nutrition theraphy effect on oxidative stress, inflammation, glycemic control in type 2 diabetes patients. Methods: An interventional study was carried on 35 type 2 diabetes ages between 20-65 years old at the Department of Endocrinology of Baskent University Istanbul Hospital in 2015. In 3 month period a personal nutrition theraphy was applied. Biochemical parameters, anthropometric measurements and body analysis were also determined. The three day food consumption and biochemical parameters were requested at the beginning and at the end of the study. Results: When the impact of the blood values of the new medical nutrition theraphy which the patients practiced during the first visit and the follow up visit were compared; it was seen that there was a significant decrease on fasting plasma glucose, fasting insulin, HbA1c, CRP, TG and MDA values (p<0.05). The mean diabetic age of the patients was 7.63 +/- 6.22 years. When diabetic age of the patients was increased, there was a positive correlation between the fasting plasma glucose and HbA1c values (p<0.05). Conclusions: Type 2 diabetes patients were evaluated 3 month of medical nutrition theraphy and it was seen that the personal medical nutritional theraphy contributed to providing glisemic control and decreasing oxidative stress and inflammation.
