Nice post but make sure to add that quantity matters a lot in DM diets n for all the oily soups n snacks uv included, u should take into consideration of the patient's nutritional status eg if obesed or has high levels of cholesterol,so they dont end up with complications that would eventually lead to death..
Thanks
