The 1st of the Diabetes Awareness Diploma Course’s modules introduces the condition; explaining what it is, the fact that there are 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. The 2nd module of the course takes students through this history, with notable advances in treatment explained along the way. This module also dispels many of the common myths surrounding diabetes and explains what pre-diabetes is.

To give a greater understanding of the condition, module 3 of the Diabetes Awareness Diploma 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.

Module 4 teaches students what symptoms to look out for in someone who has not been diagnosed with the diabetes and the tests that can be taken to reach a diagnosis. The 2nd part of the module explains what Hypoglycemia and Hyperglycemia are and how they affect the body.

Over time High blood glucose (sugar) levels can affect other parts of the body, especially if not kept under control. The 5th module of the Diabetes Awareness Diploma Course describes a range issues that can come about as a result of this, both physical and mental.

With the importance of diet, exercise, and adhering to a strict medication regime, to keep blood glucose levels under control, module 6 describes the medication taken by those with type 1 or type 2 diabetes, including the types and applications available. This module ends by explaining complications that can occur during treatment, how to prevent these and how to treat them.

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 7th module of the Diabetes Awareness Diploma Course goes through 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.

As there are many different aspects and components to the condition, diabetics require a team of people to be available to them. Module 8 explains the roles of the various nurses, counsellors, dieticians and specialists that a diabetic could need.

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. The 9th module of the Diabetes Awareness Diploma Course goes into depth about how to succeed in this, as well as explaining the effects of diabetes on the family of someone with the condition and important considerations to make when travelling.

With the basics of the major of types of diabetes and how to manage them discussed, module 10 expands students’ knowledge by looking at how the condition is treated in very different and very specific cases; explaining how prisoners and athletes manage diabetes.

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. Module 11 outlines a number of the training programmes that will aid further education in this area.

The final module talks about current research into diabetes, the companies that are conducting it, and what they hope to achieve.
