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 a massive difference in their lives, whether they are already suffering from diabetes or at risk of developing it.
This 1-hour video course will provide you with an understanding of the different types of diabetes, along with their causes and symptoms and treatment. There will be a particular focus on the prevention and management of metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes.
