This course is based on the book, Nutrition and Diabetes: Pathophysiology and Management, Second Edition, a comprehensive resource that describes various factors that drive the accumulation of excess body weight and fat that results in obesity. The purpose of the book is to provide a forum that highlights the link between obesity and diabetes.

Broken into two sections, Pathophysiology and Treatment of Obesity and Pathophysiology and Treatment of Diabetes, the book features emerging therapeutic approaches for management of obesity and diabetes and discusses topics that include modulators of appetite and satiety, fat distribution and diabetes, management of obesity-related type 2 diabetes, and the role of the gut microbiota in the pathogenesis of both obesity and diabetes.

The role of bariatric surgery in treatment of and effect on diabetes is also discussed, highlighting diet’s role and the interrelationships in metabolism of key nutrients in the pathogenesis of obesity and diabetes, and outlining emerging research on the pathogenesis and treatment of both conditions. This is a valuable resource for educators, clinicians, students, and researchers in the fields of diabetes and obesity. A case study-based CPE exam tests understanding on the topics covered in the book.

This is a good self-study course as it examines diabetes from origins to management throughout the life cycle and through different treatment modalities. Dietitians and Certified Diabetes Educators need to have a thorough understanding of all of these areas, and I feel this course provides a high level view of the pathophysiology and nutrition, as well as specific and current studies and research that can help inform practice. I would recommend this course to anyone looking to gain a deep, scientific understanding of diabetes and evidence on the many treatment options, especially highlighting nutritional prevention and management.
