About the Level 4 Diabetes Certificate
Diabetes is a lifelong condition which affects a person’s ability to produce insulin and control their own blood sugar. While some people are born with the condition, others develop it in later life. In either case, awareness of the condition and its causes can help people to control the disease, or even prevent it from occurring in the first place.
Students who embark on this distance learning course will become a part of a national effort to understand diabetes. They will study modules covering everything from detection and prevention, to clinical care and gestational diabetes. Students will also learn to empower those living with the condition and discover how society can provide better care services.
