High carb vegan dietetic intern gave a presentation to type 2 diabetics learning about carbohydrate counting. Although she disagrees with carbohydrate counting, she doesn’t have the authority to go against the current recommendations. However, she was still able to help the class to eat more fruits and vegetables and live a healthier lifestyle for a happier future.
This was for my community rotation at the Coastal Bend Health Education Center where they provide diabetes education and monitor and evaluate clients who are at risk or diagnosed with diabetes. I incorporated lots of pictures to gear towards a low literacy audience.
The most frustrating thing is sitting though how the clients need to carbohydrate count and how this diagnosis is a progressive disease that doesn’t go away and it gets worse with age. I have personally met people who have reversed their diabetes so this upsets me. I hope to actually reverse diabetes in my practice in the future.
