Yeppers, there is too an 1800 cal. ADA Diet. They also have 2200, 2000,
1500, and even a 2500. Yes, they are outdated as of 1994 when carb counting
came into recognition, but the ADA exchange diets are still used by a lot of
DMers. Not everyone micromanages their DM like pumpers do and need
guidelines. Sounds like that is what this hospital is using.
