When it comes to carbohydrate, how and what we advise our patients matters. The subject is a huge source of confusion and controversy for both patients and health professionals. Dr Paul McArdle obtained his PhD researching how to improve our carbohydrate advice and that is what this webinar will focus on.



  • The current evidence base and guidelines for carbohydrate in type 2 diabetes
  • How to classify and understand levels of carbohydrate restriction
  • How to apply the principles of patient-centred care to the question of how much carbohydrate is right for your patient


  • The differences in the approach to carbohydrate management between Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes
  • The views and experiences of both people with diabetes and dietitians regarding carbohydrate advice
  • A range of resources to help you and your patients


  • State confidently the current state of the evidence for low carbohydrate diets in Type 2 diabetes
  • Support your patients to avoid a one-size-fits-all approach to carbohydrate and Type 2 diabetes
  • Identify further personal learning and development needs
