Understanding Diabetes Medications
UNDERSTANDING DIABETES MEDICATIONS
Throughout this webinar we will review the oral and inject-able diabetes medications, their role and how to help individuals understand the medication choices made by their providers. We'll review the action the medication takes and discuss how to make recommendations to providers to improve diabetes management and decrease diabetes related complications.
Upon successful completion of this one-hour course, the participant should be able to:
  • Understand oral medications and how they differ.


  • Review injectable medications.


  • Determine the peak schedule of insulin and how to make insulin adjustments.


  • Review the best way to talk to providers about potential suggestions and tweaks to medication regimines.


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.
