Course Description

In the contemporary world, diabetes is considered one of the leading causes of mortality. There are approximately 73 million people with diabetes in India, and the country is set to become the diabetes capital of the world. Nutrition has an important role to play in the management of diabetes. Medical nutrition therapy is an integral component of diabetes management and diabetes self-management education (DSME). Many patients with diabetes get inadequate education about nutrition from doctors. Also, many medical practitioners and dieticians give dietary recommendations that have no supporting evidence. Therefore, there is a need for an education program that will provide healthcare professionals with the knowledge required to deliver evidence-based nutritional interventions to diabetes patients.

The Certificate in Diabetes Nutrition course will help clinicians and dieticians to increase awareness on the principles of nutrition therapy, and diet plans for diabetes patients. The course will provide you with knowledge on how to create beneficial nutritional interventions by combining evidence-based recommendations and considering the individual’s cultural, ethnic background, and personal preferences. Guidelines recommend that a knowledgeable and skilled dietician should be primarily involved in nutrition therapy in diabetes. However, considering the burden of diabetes in India, all members of the health care team must be knowledgeable about nutrition therapy. The course is therefore open to doctors, nurses, dieticians, physician assistants, and educators.
