The Understanding Prediabetes self-study course makes a good CPE program because it covers the basics of prediabetes assessment and prevention of progression to type 2 diabetes. Various factors such as genetics, environment, lifestyle, diet, and medications are explored, which should be considered with this complex condition and dietitians should be equipped to discuss these factors.
