This course will build on existing skills and knowledge in relation to nutritional recommendations for diabetes and explores the application of theory to practice.  It discusses current Diabetes UK and the American Diabetes Association evidence based nutritional guidelines for diabetes.  It discusses all current oral and injectable anti- hyperglycaemic medications and their dietary implications.  This course includes an introduction to carbohydrate counting (from awareness to dose adjustment), but this subject is covered in much greater depth in the Advanced Practice in Diabetes course.  

The course will be suitable for dietitians who wish to increase their general diabetes knowledge with a view to begin practising at specialist level.
