Diabetes Care in Children and Young People

Course Description

Diabetes in Children and Young People


This distance learning Diabetes in Children and Young People programme has been written for people who are involved in the care sector and is aimed to give all staff, supervisors and managers the essential knowledge needed to offer the very best professional approach to the management of diabetes.

Diabetes is a serious health condition where the amount of blood glucose in the body is much higher than its requirements.  Consequently, the body cannot use it as efficiently as it should do.  This is due to the pancreas - a small organ that is situated behind the stomach, either not producing any insulin or it doesn’t produce enough insulin - this all depends on the type of diabetes a person has.  Fundamentally, there are two types of diabetes: type 1 and type 2.  It is a common degenerative health problem for people all over the world, both male and female.

Although diabetic symptoms and the conditions that are associated with diabetes can be treated to a certain extent, unfortunately there is as yet no known cure.  It is crucial to spot the symptoms of diabetes sooner rather than later.  This is to prevent any of the many serious complications associated with the condition developing, or progressing further, in service users that already have some of the serious problems linked to diabetes.
