Course Outline

Learners will be provided with all the necessary learning knowledge required to offer a professional approach to the management of diabetes.

Diabetes is a health condition that is affected when the amount of blood glucose in the body is much higher than it is required to be. As a result, the body can not use the glucose in an effective manner.

This is caused by the pancreas (an organ that is located behind the stomach) that is not producing enough insulin or any at all. This is determined by the type of diabetes. There are two types of diabetes, these include: type 1 and type 2. There are a range of symptoms that are linked to this condition. There is no cure for diabetes, however, it can be treated to a degree.
