Certificate Course in Diabetes Nutrition

This course will provide the student knowledge of medical nutrition therapy in diabetes. It has been developed by clinical nutrition experts managing diabetes cases based on international best practice guidelines in diabetes nutrition.


There are approximately 72-million people with diabetes in India, and the country is set to become the diabetes capital of world. Nutrition has an important role to play in the management of diabetes.  Medical nutrition therapy is an integral component of diabetes management and diabetes self-management education. Many patients with diabetes get inadequate education about nutrition from doctors. Also, many medical practitioners and dieticians give dietary recommendations that have no supporting evidence. Therefore, there is a need for an education program that will provide healthcare professionals with the knowledge required to deliver evidence-based nutritional interventions to diabetes patients. The Certificate in Diabetes Nutrition course will increase the awareness of clinicians and dieticians on the principles of creating nutrition therapy and diet plans for various diabetes patients. The course will give you knowledge on how to create beneficial nutritional interventions by combining evidence-based recommendations and considering the individual’s cultural and ethnic background, and personal preferences. Guidelines recommend that a knowledgeable and skilled dietician should be primarily involved in nutrition therapy in diabetes. However, considering the burden of diabetes in India, it is essential that all members of the care team are knowledgeable about nutrition therapy.
