Title Diabetes complications
Description
  • Diabetes is an increasing problem among both adults and children. This free course, Diabetes complications, looks at the way the condition is managed once it has been diagnosed in order to reduce the risk of further complications. You will look at the role of each member of the team involved in the diabetes annual review and look at the risk factors involved with certain diabetes complications.<link rel="canonical" href="http://www.open.edu/openlearn/science-maths-technology/science/biology/diabetes-complications/content-section-0" /> First published on Wed, 02 Mar 2016 as <a href="http://www.open.edu/openlearn/science-maths-technology/science/biology/diabetes-complications/content-section-0">Diabetes complications</a>.

  • <p>This course is designed to inform people from a variety of backgrounds about diabetes and its management. You might be hoping to learn more about diabetes because you plan to have a career in the health services, or you may be caring for someone with this condition, or you may have diabetes yourself. Whatever your reasons for viewing these pages we hope that you are able to learn more about the processes that cause diabetes and how Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes are treated. You should know about the signs and symptoms of the condition, and should appreciate how they would affect the day-to-day life of that person.</p><p>The aim of managing diabetes, therefore, is to enable affected people, as far as possible, to feel well enough to live the sort of life they would have lived if they did not have the condition. However, apart from improving the quality of life of the person with diabetes, the correct management of both types of diabetes reduces the risks of the long-term complications that can develop if the condition is poorly controlled. This course examines the factors that increase these risks, how they are monitored, and who performs the tests associated with these risks.</p><p>This OpenLearn course provides a sample of Level 1 study in <span class="oucontent-linkwithtip"><a class="oucontent-hyperlink" href="http://www.open.ac.uk/courses/find/science?LKCAMPAIGN=ebook_&amp;MEDIA=ou">Science</a></span>.</p>
