Diploma in Diabetes and Children and Young People – Level 3

Diabetes is a chronic condition that plagues more than millions of people worldwide and is one of the leading causes of deaths in the modern world. Although it is widely believed to only affect adults, it is common among children and young people as well, making it all the more crucial to be aware on the condition to detect and treat them early on before it turns fatal. This Diploma in Diabetes and Children and Young People – Level 3 has been formulated to help you do just that by focusing on the diabetes in children and young people.

This highly detailed course will enlighten you on the level 1 diabetes which is quite prevalent in all age groups. You will get to learn about its symptoms and treatments, followed up by modules that will clarify you on the concerns and myths related to diabetes. Insulin is the most common form of treatment for diabetes and hence, will also be adequately emphasized through this comprehensive course.

The many complications associated with diabetes such as kidney damage, cardiovascular disease, foot damage, eye damage and many more will be discussed in-depth through this course. You will also get to comprehend the struggles of living and growing up with diabetes, after which you will get to delve into the dietary considerations for diabetes patients. By the end of this course, you will have a strong knowledge on diabetes to help children and young people dealing with it.
