Learn How To Live With And Manage Diabetes

Providing answers to questions that patients and caregivers may have, the Diabetes Awareness Course aims to impart knowledge about the condition, including its effects and how to live with and manage diabetes.

In this Diabetes Awareness Course students will learn about the different types of diabetes, what insulin is and what it does, and the increase in diagnosed cases and the effects this has had on healthcare costs.

Diabetes is not a new condition, in fact, quite the opposite, with a recorded history going back as far as 1500 BC, though it was known by a different name. Students will look at the history, with notable advances in treatment explained along the way. Diabetes Awareness Course explains the different types of diabetes, including the more commonly-known Type 1, Type 2, and gestational diabetes, as well as the lesser-known and rarer types.

You will learn what symptoms to look out for in someone who has not been diagnosed with diabetes and the tests that can be taken to reach a diagnosis. Over time high blood glucose (sugar) levels can affect other parts of the body, especially if not kept under control. You will learn about a range of issues that can come about as a result of this, both physical and mental.

Diabetes is non-age-specific, meaning it can appear in anyone, from infancy, right through to old age, and can take different forms and can even be temporary, such as in cases of gestational diabetes. The Diabetes Awareness Course highlights how the condition presents itself in people across a range of ages (and its affects in pregnancy), outlining the early warning signs, how it can occur, and what it can mean for the individual affected.

Living a healthy lifestyle is important in the management of diabetes, and this can be done more easily by the setting and reaching of goals. This includes being aware of and working on: exercise, weight and diet management, glucose monitoring, taking medications as prescribed, monitoring blood pressure and cholesterol, and keeping medical appointments.

Whether you are professional who wishes to work in this area or a patient who wishes to better understand the condition, there are many training programmes that can keep you up-to-date with practices and changes in the way diabetes and related issues are treated. Students will learn about a number of the training programmes that will aid further education in this area.

Who Would Benefit from the Course?

With the number of patients diagnosed with the condition on the increase, the Certificate in Diabetes Awareness Course is for anyone who wishes to more fully understand diabetes, whether they are living with it already, have friends or family members who are, or currently in a caring career and are considering going onto further study specialising in this area.
