Challenged on what to recommend when a client is implementing lifestyle modifications? Learn to sort through the evidence and individualize eating plans for those with diabetes and prediabetes.
Kathy Warwick, RD, CDE will discuss the updated American Diabetes Association Nutrition Therapy Guidelines.
Diabetes is a complex chronic illness requiring ongoing education and support for those adults who have been diagnosed with diabetes or prediabetes. Deciphering what they should be eating is frequently the biggest challenge when it comes to lifestyle modifications. RDNs can be instrumental in helping sort through the options and individualizing eating plans that consider the desires and abilities of the adult with diabetes. As dietetic professionals, we must be kept up to date on the most current evidence-based guidelines in order to provide the support that is needed. In this webinar, Kathy Warwick, RD, CDE will discuss the updated American Diabetes Association nutrition therapy guidelines for those with diabetes and prediabetes.
“As a nutrition and dietetics professor, it is wonderful to see such high-quality educational opportunities for registered dietitian nutritionists. Becky Dorner & Associates provides educational opportunities for topics that are on the cutting edge of nutrition research and practical application.”
After attending this session attendees will be able to:
- Discuss the importance of MNT based on individualized eating plans versus “one-size fits all” nutrition guidance for effective self-management of diabetes and prediabetes in adults.
- Identify the role of macronutrients in various eating plans for those with diabetes and prediabetes.
- Compare and contrast several eating patterns and examine the evidence-based guidelines for those with diabetes and prediabetes.
