Nutritional intervention can be a powerful tool to improve diabetes management. Weight loss is the most effective treatment of the underlying cause of diabetes, insulin resistance. Participants of this symposium will learn how to apply two evidence based nutritional strategies for diabetes management, a low carbohydrate diet and meal replacements. Abrupt dietary changes and associated weight loss require proactive management of diabetes medications. Participants will learn diabetes medication management strategies to reduce the risk of hypoglycemia and limit weight regain.
