Nutrition Management for the Diabetic Patient – Live Webinar
June 12 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am MST| $79.99
Many diabetic patients do not fully understand the role nutrition plays in their overall management of the disease. You do not need to be a nutritionist to offer sound nutritional advice to your diabetic patients. In this course you will learn the importance of diabetic nutritional management for both type 1 and type 2 diabetic patients. We will analyze diabetes at a cellular level and then discuss the nutrition needed for optimal glucose metabolism and function. Focus will be placed on macronutrients and their effects on glucose metabolism along with fiber, an important component in glucose control. We will discuss both prevention and treatment strategies. We will also briefly discuss the role exercise plays in type 2 diabetes management.
