Diabetes is a condition where the amount of glucose in your blood is too high because the body cannot use it properly.
This is because your pancreas doesn’t produce any insulin, or not enough insulin, to help glucose enter your body’s cells – or the insulin that is produced does not work properly (known as insulin resistance).
The Diabetes Awareness Training Course is designed for healthcare and support workers. It will enable delegates to recognise symptoms and provide the correct care and support to those who have or whom you suspect have diabetes.
