Course Description

This home study program provides information about the management of diabetes mellitus. Since the disorder has plagued the human race for an extremely long time (perhaps, forever), treatment methods have varied greatly. From near-starvation diets in the days before insulin was discovered (which only prolonged the inevitability of death) to today's multi-faceted treatments based on scientific research and a much clearer understanding of the underlying pathophysiology of diabetes, the management of diabetes is continually being refined. In addition to management issues, topics of recent research are discussed. A glossary of terms is provided as is Appendix D which lists behavioral objectives for an education plan for persons with diabetes and their significant others. The objectives may be used as a model for an individualized education plan. Learner activities are included where appropriate to provide experiential learning. A current and comprehensive reference list is also provided.
