From diabetes to dementia, learn about the latest research on ketogenic diets.

The Learning Process:

Participants are expected to watch the video, reflect on its content, and complete the CME self-assessment and CME evaluation. Only upon completing this process will a participant's continuing education certificate be generated. The estimated time a learner will need to complete this self-study activity is 1 hour.

This activity is approved for continuing education for physicians, nurses, dietitians and health and wellness coaches.

The George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences designates this enduring activity for a maximum of 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

1. The participant will be able to define a ketogenic diet and the physiological changes it triggers. 
2. The participant will identify conditions for which there is strong evidence of benefit for a ketogenic diet and those for which evidence is lacking. 
3. The learner will be able to describe the short- and long-term risks associated with consuming a ketogenic diet.

Requirements for successful completion: Participants will be awarded contact hours commensurate with participation after completion of the post-test with a score of 70% or higher.
