Are You Up to Date on Diabetes Medications? With so many changes in medications and treatments in the past few years, it’s hard to keep up. This program will provide you with the information you need to support your nutrition practices.

Once upon a time, there were only 3 or 4 classes of medications available for the treatment of diabetes. In the past few years however, there have been many new drug classes added to the medical practitioner’s tool box. If you work with clients living with diabetes, it is important to recognize these new classes of drugs and to understand the possible benefits and potential adverse effects. Medical nutrition therapy interventions need to mesh well with the prescribed drug therapy.

Join Kathy Warwick, RDN, CDCES for this comprehensive, practical overview of the oral and injectable diabetes drugs currently on the market.

This would make a good CPE program because there is still confusion and misinformation regarding diet, dietary cholesterol and cardiovascular risks. This course provides a comprehensive update.
