Evidence-Based Carbohydrate Restriction
Time & Location
About the Event
Diabetes Canada recently released a position statement on the use of low carbohydrate diets in diabetes including the following important comment - "In the absence of clear trial evidence to support generalised recommendations and the positive results experienced by people following low and very low-CHO diets, health-care providers will need to work as partners with individuals seeking to identify an optimal and sustainable dietary pattern that fits with their individual preferences."
This webinar provides dietitians and other cliniicians with an evidence-based approach to using reduced carbohydrate diets to safely support an individualized approach to diabetes care.
