Recorded Webinar: Therapeutic Lifestyle Changes for Prediabetes and Type 2 Diabetes

This webinar took place on Wednesday, November 30, 2022, from 2-3 p.m. ET. 

From what you eat, to physical activity, to sleep, and social interactions, lifestyle plays a large role in helping to control your blood sugar. With 37 million people in the US with diabetes (90-95% of them have type 2 diabetes) and 96 million people with prediabetes, the need for lifestyle interventions to manage and treat these chronic diseases is essential.

Join Vicki Shanta Retelny, RDN, for an interactive webinar that will take an evidence-based look at therapeutic lifestyle changes to help prevent and treat prediabetes and type 2 diabetes. Vicki will help you understand the latest guidelines on the role balanced nutrition, physical activity, sleep, and social life play in keeping blood sugar levels in a normal range over the lifespan. Learn the strategies your patients and clients can use to take charge of their prediabetes and diabetes management through daily lifestyle changes that will ultimately lead to improved health outcomes.  

Learning Objectives

After attending this session, health care professionals and clinicians should be able to:

  1. Identify the biomarkers of the diagnosis of prediabetes and type 2 diabetes.
  2. Define how lifestyle changes can impact and help patients manage blood sugar levels better.
  3. Strategize individual lifestyle changes and their role in the prevention, management, and remission of prediabetes and type 2 diabetes.
