Recorded Webinar: News in Nutrition Therapy for Prediabetes and Type 2 Diabetes: Getting from Didactic to Pragmatic (Part 1)

The live version of this webinar was presented by Hope Warshaw, MMSc, RD, CDE, BC-ADM, on Wednesday, March 4, 2020, at 2 pm ET.

In mid-2019 the American Diabetes Association (ADA) released their latest comprehensive review of the literature that integrates the seminal and more recent research along with answers to clinicians’ common questions. For the first time this review, Nutrition Therapy for Adults with Diabetes or Prediabetes: A Consensus Report, also encompassed the increasingly common condition called prediabetes.

This webinar will begin with a synthesis of the research and guidance. Particular focus will be paid to the hot topics of how much and what types of carbohydrates, proteins and fats to recommend, and optimal eating patterns. Hope will also delineate the common denominators of the ADA’s nutrition guidance. The webinar will then transition from didactic to pragmatic, where Hope will review case studies that highlight common clinical challenges and client scenarios to offer clinical considerations and counseling tips.
