Low carb and ketogenic meal plans can improve glycemic control and weight. Current guidelines now include low and very low carbohydrate eating patterns (less than 26% of total calories) as a treatment strategy. These meal plans have grown in popularity and many people with diabetes (PWD) may choose to follow one. It is important for dietitians and diabetes care and education specialists to support PWD through education on how to optimize the low carb meal plan, as well as facilitating medication adjustments to reduce hypoglycemia. This session will review the evidence for low carbohydrate nutrition for people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes, provide practical tips for implementing low carbohydrate meal plans, and discuss the medication adjustments needed as the PWD transitions to a lower carb lifestyle.

Learning Objectives:

  • Compare and contrast the evidence for low carbohydrate eating patterns for people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes
  • Demonstrate different styles of low carbohydrate eating patterns and how they can be incorporated into diabetes nutrition therapy, care and education.
  • Implement case studies with recommended medication adjustments for people with diabetes who transition to a lower carbohydrate lifestyle to hone nutrition guidance for PWD

Performance Indicators:

  • 10.4.2 Applies knowledge of pharmacotherapy and its effect on nutrient absorption, utilization and metabolism when developing and/or revising the plan of care.
  • 8.1.3 Integrates knowledge of macronutrients and micronutrients for absorption, digestion and metabolism throughout the life span in practice.
  • 9.4.5 Implements an individualized teaching plan in order to promote, maintain and enhance nutritional health and learning.
