Diabetes is a big problem. In the UK alone, 3.5 million people are diagnosed with diabetes and it is predicted that over 500,000 people have yet to be diagnosed with the condition.
Since over 90% of those with diabetes are either overweight or obese, it is clear that the two are linked. Diabetes is not just a metabolic disorder of glycemic control, but translates into increased cardiovascular risk. Therefore, diabetes has become a global epidemic that incurs huge costs to the healthcare sector and premature mortality.
This module, which consists of a 20-25 minute talk by Prof Steve Davies (Consultant Endocrinologist), explores the potential of lifestyle interventions in the prevention and treatment of type 2 diabetes.
Once you complete the module - and achieve the minimum pass rate of 60% - you'll be awarded with a downloadable 1 hour CPD Certificate, which you can print or upload to your CPD Portfolio.
On completion of all 5 multiple-choice questions, you will have an improved understanding of:
What evidence exists to support lifestyle interventions in diabetes
What lifestyle interventions prove successful in weight loss and preventing diabetes
Impact of lifestyle interventions on remission of diabetes
