Editor’s Desk: Medical Nutrition Therapy and Diabetes

Did you know that medical nutrition therapy (MNT) has been around longer than insulin? In fact, MNT for diabetes care goes back over 200 years. Our Clinical Text from Joslin’s Diabetes Deskbook, "The How’s and Why’s of Medical Nutrition Therapy," brings to life the idea of empowering patients to manage their own care, and why Dr. Elliot Joslin was such a big advocate.

This week’s Homerun Slides cover the second and final part of Dr. Barry Popkin’s Global Sugar presentation and, our Disaster Averted focuses on the reasons your patients should write down your recommendations rather than just try to remember them.
