Webinar: Type 2 Diabetes and Eating Disorders: Navigating Blood Sugars, Medications and Shame
Type 2 Diabetes is an area in healthcare that’s steeped in anti-fat bias and diet culture- clients are often told to lose weight and restrict intake to manage their blood sugars. When working with clients with Type 2 Diabetes and disordered eating it can be difficult to figure out what we can do to help these clients improve their relationship with food since there is often a fear of what that will do to blood sugars. This webinar will help you to learn strategies to work with these clients in a way that improves their relationship with food and strategies to help with blood sugar management that don’t involve restriction.
We will discuss:
- The shame that many clients feel with Type 2 Diabetes and how this affects treatment
- Factors that affect blood glucose levels other than food and movement
- Different medications for diabetes and important considerations for clients taking them
- Nutrition strategies to help bring blood sugars closer to target without restriction
All registrants will receive access to the webinar recording, transcript, and resources.
