Regardless of the associated pharmacological treatment modality, hygienic-dietary measures, focusing on lifestyle modification (diet and physical activity), represent the basis of the management of type 1 and type 2 diabetes. In order to ensure that these dietary measures are effective and long lasting, their implementation and follow-up require guidance. This work focuses on nutrition coaching based on a low glycemic index (GI) diet proposed to type 2 diabetics with the aim of reducing postprandial glycemia in the direction of a better balance to help prevent micro and macro-vascular complications. This method is easy to follow and does not require high restrictions, it allowed us to significantly lower glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) by 0.92% after a 12-week follow-up (P < 0.05). However, the control diabetic patients who did not benefit from the coaching did not show any significant difference before and after the 12-week experiment.
