Read Papers from The Controversial Role of Macronutrient Composition in Diabetes and Related Disorders

In 2013, ENC sponsored and organized a satellite symposium “The Controversial Role of Dietary Protein in Diabetes and Related Disorders” chaired by Mitch Kanter, PhD, Executive Director, ENC, held in conjunction with the American Society for Nutrition’s 2013 Advances and Controversies in Clinical Nutrition Conference (December 5-7,2013) in Washington, DC.

The program featured presentations which provided an overview of the available evidence on macronutrient composition and specifically, dietary protein, in the prevention and management of diabetes and diabetes-related risk factors. Coordinated by Tia Rains, PhD, Senior Director, Nutrition Research & Communications, ENC, proceedings were recently published in a supplement within Journal of Nutrition titled: The Controversial Role of Macronutrient Composition in Diabetes andRelated Disorders of the Journal of Nutrition.
