Tackling the Triple Threat: Malnutrition, Sarcopenia, and Frailty (1 CPEU)

Monday, September 12 at 2 p.m. EDT

Malnutrition, frailty, and sarcopenia are very similar conditions. Physical characteristics of each condition mimic each other, making diagnosis and treatment difficult.

Diabetic Kidney Disease (1 CPEU)

Monday, September 12 at 7 p.m. EDT

Adding chronic kidney disease (CKD) medical nutrition therapy to diabetes management can be overwhelming for a patient, especially without education and encouragement from a dietitian. However, we know that early nutrition education for patients diagnosed with CKD can improve biomarkers and can even delay or prevent progression to end stage renal failure requiring dialysis. Explore everything you need to know when it comes to diabetic kidney disease so you are prepared to help your patients navigate these two conditions.
