Course Description

This course reviews carbohydrate counting for the diabetes patient. Examined are the role carbohydrates play in the management of blood glucose, how best to maximize control over blood glucose levels using precise measurements of carbohydrates, and the benefits this approach can have on diabetes disease management, body weight, and overall quality of life. The program focuses on two concepts: basic carbohydrate counting as a way to keep blood glucose levels consistent, and advanced carbohydrate counting which is used to help calculate insulin doses.
