Course Description

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 in children and young people.

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. This course is primarily focussed on type 1, as this condition is present in almost 100% of childhood cases. It is also most deadly if left untreated. It is therefore crucial to spot the symptoms of diabetes sooner rather than later and this course offers vital knowledge to help recognise these.

Diabetes is a common degenerative health problem for people all over the world, both male and female and although there is no known cure as yet, this course offers invaluable guidance to help children manage and treat the condition and ultimately lead a fulfilling life.
