The effect of dietary education incorporating information about the glycaemic index of carbohydrate was tested against standard dietary advice in a randomized controlled study in 51 newly diagnosed patients with Type 2 diabetes treated as out-patients with diet only over a 12-week study period. Outcome was assessed by dietary analysis of 3-day diet diaries,(More)
Clinical outcome audit was carried out on two groups of obese out-patients for a 3-month follow-up period. In the first audit group of 35 patients (A1), energy intake was prescribed by diet history, whereas in the second audit group of 27 patients (A2) energy intake was prescribed from an estimate of individual energy requirements based on age, sex, and(More)
These consensus-based recommendations emphasize the practical implementation of nutritional advice for people with diabetes, and describe the provision of services required to provide the information. Important changes from previous recommendations include greater flexibility in the proportions of energy derived from carbohydrate and monounsaturated fat,(More)
A binary codeword is a vector v = (a0 a1 . . . an) ∈ F 2 that is used to transmit information. Note that v naturally corresponds to the polynomial v(x) = a0 + a1x+ a2x 2 + . . .+ anx n ∈ F2[x]. Thus, we are naturally interested in investigating polynomials with coe cients in F2, and we do so in the rst two sections. In the third section, we determine how to(More)
The goal is to design an algorithm to generate t-designs from the support sets of extended quadratic residue codes. A code C over an alphabet Q is a proper subset of Q (n is the length of the code). Often Q is a Q-vector space (with Q a field) and the code C is a linear subspace (such a code is called a linear code). The elements of C are called codewords.(More)

Hirschsprung disease (HD) is a disorder of motility in the bowel caused by the absence of parasympathetic ganglion cells. This article will discuss the symptoms, diagnostic tests, methods of surgical management and complications of HD with an emphasis on enterocolitis. HD is a treatable condition and with proper management, the child can return to a normal(More)
This article summarizes the Diabetes UK evidence-based guidelines for the prevention of Type 2 diabetes and nutritional management of diabetes. It describes the development of the recommendations and highlights the key changes from previous guidelines. The nutrition guidelines include a series of recommendations for the prevention of Type 2 diabetes,(More)
Quality Assurance (QA) programs assure that patients are getting the appropriate care, information, and support needed to produce better health outcomes. In this article, the authors describe monitoring nursing process by documentation of care in patients with constipation/encopresis. Longitudinal follow up to monitor patient outcomes completed the QA(More)
