Learn the Causes, Symptoms and Treatment of Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes

Once upon a time diabetes was a rare condition that happened to an unfortunate few. Now it is fast becoming the norm. There are an estimated 3.5 million people living with diabetes in the UK and a further 1 million who are thought to have undiagnosed diabetes. By 2040 it is expected that diabetes will affect 1 in 10 of us.

This means that a significant proportion of the clients you see could be suffering from diagnosed or undiagnosed diabetes plus many more will be at risk of developing the condition. As a health and fitness professional you are uniquely positioned to help these clients. This masterclass will give you the knowledge and skills to do just that.

How you can Help

90% of those with diabetes have Type 2 diabetes, which is a preventable condition. Obesity is the most potent risk factor for Type 2 diabetes accounting for 80–85 per cent of the overall risk of developing Type 2 diabetes. For this reason supporting your clients to be more active and eat healthier has the potential to make massive difference in their lives, whether they are already suffering from diabetes or at risk of developing it.

This 1 hour video masterclass will provide you with an understanding of the different types of diabetes, along with their causes and symptoms and treatment. There will be particular focus on the prevention and management of metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes.

Your Presenter

The masterclass is presented by nutrition and fitness expert Heather Oakes who brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to this masterclass.

"An incredibly professional organisation…"

An incredibly professional organisation that deserves recognition for the quality of the training. It was made easy for me to qualify to Level 4 PT by use on online training to provide a foundation of knowledge, then supplemented by simply superb weekend workshops on various specific aspects - these workshops under promised and over delivered every single time through instructors that had a wealth of knowledge and experience and clearly demonstrated this in a professional manner.
