Rates of prediabetes and type 2 diabetes are rising exponentially. Treatment options and management technologies continue to multiply. If you’re an RD/RDN ready for a deep dive into type 2 diabetes, this bootcamp is for you. Conducted by two experienced dietitian diabetes educators, this session kicks off with the current state of knowledge on the pathophysiology of prediabetes and type 2 diabetes; the impact of insulin resistance, glucose, lipids, and hypertension; and how type 2 progresses over time. Applying pathophysiology, you’ll gain complete understanding of the plethora of glucose-lowering medications. We’ll decipher common algorithms used in clinical practice from a real-world perspective. Other essential management topics presenters will cover include current nutrition recommendations, the impact and timing of weight loss, blood and continuous glucose monitoring, detecting glucose patterns to improve disease management, and much more. Case presentations with participant interaction will be a core element of the program. Please put your boots on and join us!
