Diabetes 101
DIABETES 101
During this 2016 version of Diabetes 101, you'll learn the basics of diabetes types, diagnosis, treatment and recommendations. We'll also talk about some new gestational diagnosis processes as well as a brief discussion about the use of telehealth for patients with diabetes.
Upon successful completion of this one-hour course, the participant should be able to:
  • Discuss current diagnosis guidelines for Type 2, gestational, Type 1 and Pre-diabetes.


  • Review common complications of diabetes and treatments.


  • Describe current nutrition and exercise recommendations.


  • Evaluate when a patient should monitor blood sugars and appropriate times to suggest medication changes.


FOR CDEs: This Course Qualifies for CE Credit!

To satisfy the requirement for renewal of certification according to the National Certification Board for Diabetes Educators (NCBDE, www.ncbde.org), courses must relate to diabetes and be part of the list of recognized providers of the NCBDE. The Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR) is listed as an NCBDE recognized provider. Because Dietitian Central has been granted accreditation by the CDR, it therefore meets the criteria as an approved provider of CEs for CDEs by the NCBDE. The NCBDE does not directly approve continuing education for any specific webinar or self study course.
