The Role of Dietary Supplements in Glycemic and Cholesterol Control

90-minute Webinar Recording
Effective dates for CE credit: 8/7/2019 – 8/7/2021

Program Overview

Approximately 50% of Americans take dietary supplements and a survey of adults with diabetes found that 67% used vitamins or supplements. Although there is insufficient evidence to support the use of herbals and micronutrients, there might be some benefits in some PWD when certain supplements are used as coadjuvants to glycemic and cholesterol management therapies. Persons with diabetes who use supplements to manage their glycemic and high cholesterol may lack the knowledge and have concerns about how to choose the most effective and safe supplement. This presentation will focus on the most popular supplements and educators will be able to identify the supplements that may be beneficial, their function, dosage information and potential risks. The diabetes care and education specialist will be able to assess and guide the patient in selecting supplements.

Learning Outcome

Participants will be able identify the most common supplements used to manage hyperglycemia and hypercholesterolemia and be able to educate people with diabetes about risks and benefits, safety and efficacy of dietary supplements.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this presentation, the participant will be able to:

-- Identify at least three of the most popular supplements to manage glycemia and cholesterol.
-- Define functional and fortified functional foods and enumerate some of its benefits.
