Many health care professionals, including dietitians, are uncomfortable addressing the kidney complications of diabetes. This webinar will demystify the assessment, monitoring, and management of diabetic kidney disease and describe clinical tools, which are intended to assist dietitians in counseling people with diabetes and kidney disease.
Join Ali Miller, RD, CD, CDE with a background and private practice in functional integrative medicine, Naturally Nourished, as she navigates complementary alternative approaches in symptom management and treatment of diabetes. In this lecture you will learn about the underlying contributors to diabetes mellitus. You will learn about mechanisms in autoimmune roles, as well as inflammatory roles and how food can modulate their expression. You will learn about foods and additives that disrupt endocrine signals and how to reduce the accumulation of toxic compounds (exocrine disruptors). We will explore up-to-date research on grain products and the role of glycemic impact and carbohydrate load as well as the use of ketosis with the diabetic population. You will learn about symptoms of diabetes and their relationship to nutriton deficiency or treatment approaches with nutritional support. You will leave with a knowledge of how to address the root causes of diabetes using food as medicine and nutritional support to correct deficiency and promote optimal outcomes.
