OVERVIEW AND INSTRUCTIONS

Obesity and diabetes are both increasing in the U.S. population. Obesity is a strong predictor of type 2 diabetes, although everyone who is obese does not have diabetes. Indeed, it is estimated that up to 25% of overweight people do not develop type 2 diabetes, and many of those with pre-diabetes are not overweight (Garber, 2012). Nutrition therapy has been shown to have a significant impact on weight loss, glycemic control, hypertension, and lipid profiles in persons with diabetes. Effective nutrition therapy requires careful meal planning and food selection, and should be individualized to the person (Evert et al., 2013). Adherence to a meal plan or dietary recommendations has been reported to be low, with few adhering to all the dietary recommendations provided (Broadbent et al, 2011). Indeed, research has shown that people with diabetes have limited knowledge of how to apply nutrition information to meal plans (Herrejon et al., 2009). Patients with diabetes have also indicated that adherence to both oral medication and insulin regimens are higher than adherence to moderate dietary modifications (Broadbent et al., 2011). The goal of this CPE program is to provide the nutrition professional with an understanding of the pathology of these conditions. In addition, the nutrition professional will develop competency in designing strategies to prevent or treat obesity and type 2 diabetes.

Chapter 1 describes the normal physiology of tissues and systems involved in the non-obese, non-diabetic person as well as how these tissues and secretions change with obesity and insulin resistance. In Chapter 2, the theories of how obesity is involved in the development of type 2 diabetes are explained. The pathophysiology and diagnosis of pre-diabetes, type 2 diabetes, and obesity are included in Chapter 3. Medical Nutrition Therapy for type 2 diabetes and its application to obesity are the focus of Chapter 4. Modifications of fat, protein, and carbohydrate are described as well as the recommended distribution of the macronutrients. Information about sugar substitutes, fiber, and the glycemic index are also included. Exercise and physical activity are important considerations in both type 2 diabetes and obesity. The role of aerobic and strength training in these conditions is explored in Chapter 5. Equally important is knowledge of medications used to treat diabetes and obesity, which are included in Chapter 6. Clinical implications are highlighted in each chapter. A case study integrates the information from these six chapters and provides examples of diagnosis and treatment. Also included is a listing of additional sources for your continued learning as well as organizations that are resources for additional information or updates.

This pre-approved CPE self-study program is a Level 2 CPE program approved for 10 Continuing Professional Education Units (CPEUs), meaning that the reader has general knowledge of the literature and professional practice within the area covered. The focus of this CPE program is to enhance knowledge and application.
To get the most benefit from this CPE program, I suggest that you follow these four steps:
Step 1: Review the objectives for the program.
Step 2: Study each chapter. As you read, think of patients or clients from your own practice who fit the situation described.
Step 3: Assess what you have learned by completing the self-assessment instrument at the end of this program.
Step 4: Compare your answers to the answer key that has been provided. If you score at least 80% correct (40 questions), you are ready to transfer your answers to the CPE REPORTING FORM. If you scored less than 80% correct, re-read this program until you score at least 80% correct.
After you have successfully completed this CPE program, fill out the CPE REPORTING FORM and:
