The purpose of performing this study was to discover through interviews, and thereby objectively establish, the degree of dietary compliance which an inner-city sub-set of type 2 diabetics maintains in conjunction with prescription drug therapy. This was thought necessary in order to ascertain whether or not a proactive and pace setting, programmed approach to afford them healthier and more affordable food choices would improve the outcomes of their hemoglobin A1C monitoring, provide weight reduction and ultimately reduce the severity and number of chronic diabetic complications, i.e. cardiovascular, renal, visual, gastrointestinal, dermatologic and neurological diseases. According to the recently published Ohio Diabetes Action Plan 2018 [1] “Diabetes represents a significant burden in the state of Ohio. In 1996, 1 in 20 Ohio adults had diabetes; today 1 in 9 do. There are significant racial, ethnic and socioeconomic disparities in the prevalence of diabetes in Ohio, and the financial burden is costly” (Ohio Department of Health, 2018). Our demographic represents, and thereby focuses upon, those very disparities sited in the action plan and thus stresses the relevant importance of this study and the reasonable solutions that we will propose [2] .
