A total of 101 patients were assigned to the intervention group with nutrition therapy (TN) + Nutriluv (multimedia site in diabetes), 80 patients to the TN control group. The glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c), glucose, cholesterol, triglycerides, LDL and HDL cholesterol were measured at the beginning and end. Weight, waist circumference, percentage of fat, systolic blood pressure and diastolic blood pressure were recorded. The level of knowledge was measured with the Diabetes Knowledge Questionnaire (DKQ24). The knowledge in diabetes improved in the group with TN+Nutriluv compared with the TN group (P<0.05). HbA1c, HDL, diastolic blood pressure and waist circumference, improved in the group with TN+Nutriluv (P<0.05). In the group with TN, cholesterol HDL, diastolic blood pressure, waist circumference and the fat percentage was increased (P<0.05).
