Traduction en anglais : German welfare (social aid) legislation : how much aid should be granted to diabetics as cost contribution to their dietary needs ?
Since their publication in 1974 the recommendations of the « German Society for Public and Private Welfare » are regarded as competent guideline for the allocation of grants concerning the diet for diabetic subjects according to 23 part 4, position 2 BSHG (Federal German Law for Social Security).
The former nutrition concepts are compared to the current international conceptions regarding the diet of diabetic individuals.
Possible variations concerning food plans are shown in model plans considering realistic habits of consumption.
Our analysis justifies additional expenses limited to about 20 to 30% for insulin-dependent diabetic subjects compared to an isocaloric regular diet.
Additional expenses for obesed non-insulin-dependent diabetic subjects are not necessary.
There is an extremely slim portion allocated for food within the social security benefit according to 22 BSHG.
That will require an comprehensive supply of education for the realisation of the current recommendations for nutrition.
The education programmes for compiling suitable food plans to remain within the scheduled cost limits need to be organized by regional carriers of social welfare, whereby public Health offices could make an important contribution.
