The medical nutritional therapy has high importance in the management of diabetes mellitus. The aim of this study was to collect information on how the diabetic elderly follow medical advices regarding nutrition. A population of 291 persons were selected consecutively from primary care patients in Hungary. Ninety-five type 2 diabetes patients were compared to 196 non-diabetics, focusing on nutritional habits, life style elements and anthropological parameters.  The diabetics were mainly overweight or obese and educated at lower levels. People with higher BMI (Body Mass Index) have eaten less frequently than people in the normal BMI range. The daily food frequency of diabetics was higher only on weekends and holidays. There were only minimal differences concerning food choices as well. The differences in the diet proved smaller than expected and recommended. The time spent with physical activity was low in general, especially among diabetics. The self-judgement showed that only 49% of diabetics kept their eating habit as healthy, vs. 63% of non-diabetics. The food choices were also modified by the economic situations of patients. It was observed that the majority of elderly diabetics did not pay enough attention to correct diabetic diet, therefore, they should be controlled more effectively by primary care staff.
