[Online lecture] Dietary approaches for the management of chronic diseases: Type 2 diabetes

Two hundred and eighty Australians develop diabetes every day, and type 2 diabetes accounts for 85 to 90 per cent of all cases. While family history is a key indicator, the risk is greatly increased if people display a number of behavioural or biomedical factors. Smoking, insufficient physical activity, dietary risks, and unhealthy weight gain are all modifiable factors.

In this sneak peek of the Professional Certificate of Medical Nutrition Management, Dr Jaimon Kelly (Senior Teaching Fellow at Bond University) discusses the risk factors, dietary changes and diets that can help improve patient outcomes.

Learn more about the lifestyle modifications recommended to manage type 2 diabetes, including carbohydrate intake and source, dietary fat, protein, alcohol intake, and body weight. Dr Kelly also discusses research on the effectiveness of various diets, such as low-glycaemic index and glycaemic load diets, vegetarian, Mediterranean and paleo diets that can help manage type 2 diabetes.
