There has been a lot of press surrounding the idea of food as medicine and that most people don’t need medication for blood pressure, cholesterol, or diabetes if they make the appropriate dietary or lifestyle changes. The suggestions regarding dietary and lifestyle changes include everything from becoming vegan to going carb-free or ‘keto’ to intermittent fasting. Looking at the assumptions surrounding the “Food Is Medicine” movement, especially in diabetes care, can help you come alongside your clients and provide inclusive diabetes care. Ask yourself these questions:

  • Are clients unsure why they need medication for diabetes, blood pressure, or cholesterol?
  • Are clients uneasy with taking medication for their diabetes?
  • Are clients confused by the number of diabetes medications available?

If you said yes to any of these questions, then this webinar can help you understand the top three assumptions about medications for blood sugar management.
