Causes of Hyperglycemia and Unintentional Changes in Body Weight

Green Clock Hours: 1.00

Over 34 million people older than 18 years of age in the U.S. are diagnosed with diabetes and another 7.3 million meet lab criteria for diabetes but have not been formally diagnosed (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC], 2020). Causes of diabetes, hyperglycemia, and weight gain and loss are well known, yet there are common causes that are underdiagnosed. Healthcare providers are required to use keen assessment skills to interpret the cause of these metabolic issues. Improving your knowledge of potential causes will facilitate accurate diagnosis and empower you to provide the most appropriate guidance to patients. In turn, your patients will be able to manage their condition more effectively and have improved quality of life.   

The goal of this course is to provide nurses and registered dietitians with strategies to detect common, yet often underdiagnosed, causes of hyperglycemia and unintentional changes in body weight.
