Diabetes is a disease that affects more than 400 millions of people worldwide. The global prevalence of diabetes has risen from 4.7% in 1980 to 8.5% in 2014, making it a rapidly increasing disease mainly in the low and middle income countries.

Diabetes exist in various stages, and all these stages have different symptoms and different treatment methods.

This course will teach you on how to treat diabetes based on the stage, person’s health, age and other factors, along with guidance on how to monitor the disease and provide support whenever necessary.
