Approximately 50% of Americans take dietary supplements and a survey of adult patients 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 patients 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 educator will be able to assess and guide the patient in selecting supplements.
Participants will be able identify the most common supplements used to manage hyperglycemia and hypercholesterolemia and be able to educate patients about risks and benefits, safety and efficacy of dietary supplements.
This is a knowledge-based learning activity. This 90-minute online session includes a presentation followed by a question and answer period.
At the end of this presentation, participants 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.
-- Summarize the key educational points when helping patients identify and select dietary supplements.
