Course Description

A Comprehensive Course opener anyone with an interest in diabetes studies.

Introduction to this course!

Having diabetes increases your risk for many serious health problems. That’s why learning to manage diabetes is so important.

This course can help you prevent some of the serious problems diabetes can cause.

Did you know? There are three main types of diabetes: type 1, type 2, and gestational diabetes.

With all types of diabetes, you as a patient need to make important decisions on a day-to-day basis and try your best to keep your blood glucose levels in your targeted range. It can be challenging.

Remember that the first step in managing diabetes is you. It’s your life, and you’re in charge. By self-managing diabetes, you can feel good and lead an active life.

Diabetes is a chronic (long-lasting) health condition that affects how your body turns food into energy. Most of the food you eat is broken down into sugar (also called glucose) and released into your bloodstream.

When your blood sugar goes up, it signals your pancreas to release insulin. Insulin acts like a key to let the blood sugar into your body’s cells for use as energy. If you have diabetes, your body either doesn’t make enough insulin or can’t use the insulin it makes as well as it should.

When there isn’t enough insulin or cells stop responding to insulin, too much blood sugar stays in your bloodstream, which over time can cause serious health problems, such as heart disease, vision loss, and kidney disease.

The body does not produce enough insulin for proper function, or the cells in the body do not react to insulin (insulin resistance). Approximately 90% of all cases of diabetes worldwide are of this type. Type 2 diabetes is largely preventable with a healthy diet and enough physical activities.

The most common cause of type 2 diabetes is obesity because it is linked with insulin resistance. Type 2 diabetes can also be caused by a sedentary lifestyle.

There are millions of people here in the UK with type 2 diabetes who do not know they have it.

The body does not produce insulin. Some people may refer to this type as insulin-dependent diabetes, juvenile diabetes, or early-onset diabetes.

People usually develop type 1 diabetes before their 40th year, often in early adulthood or teenage years. Type 1 diabetes is nowhere near as common as type 2 diabetes. Approximately 10% of all diabetes cases are type 1.

Patients with high blood sugar will typically experience polyuria (frequent urination), they will become increasingly thirsty (polydipsia), and hungry (polyphagia).

Diabetes, often referred to by doctors as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate or because the body’s cells do not respond properly to insulin, or in some cases both.

This course in diabetes awareness is open to anyone with an interest in the subject and is ideally suited to beginners or professional therapists qualified in related fields.
