Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 1
A total of 20 African-American patients with type 2 diabetes will be randomized to receive home-delivered meals for twelve consecutive months. In addition, the subjects received diabetes education at every visit (8 clinic visits and 8 phone calls)
Dietary Supplement: home-delivered meals
3 diabetic meals per day, 7 days per week for 12 months
Experimental: 2
A total of 20 African-American patients with type 2 diabetes will be randomized to receive home-delivered meals for six consecutive months. In addition, the subjects received diabetes education for up to twelve months(8 clinic visits and 8 phone calls)
Dietary Supplement: home-delivered meals
diabetic meals 3 times per day, 7 days a week for six months

Behavioral: diabetes education for 12 months
subjects in this group received diabetes education for 12 months

Detailed Description:

Data collected as a result of this project will be evaluated in aggregate to demonstrate the potential impacts on health and medical costs available through this type of intervention, with long-term goals of reducing disability and deaths due to chronic disease.
