This course was very helpful and friendly. Previously, I knew almost nothing about this disease and its manifestations. Competently selected material and recommendations. Many useful links. I would like to know more about the mechanisms of this disease. I hope that this will be done in the future.

A great course, rich with information about Diabetes, the different types and how to manage them. Detailed info about the importance of healthy eating, physical activity and lifestyle changes. Informative videos of people with Diabetes sharing their experiences unreservedly. I highly recommend it to everyone interested.

The course is great. I wished to explore or to discover more information on fasting (I think twice a week) for diabetes type 2. They were some information but very timid.

This was a great course. It was informative and gave me a greater understanding of Diabetes. What Diabetes is, how to manage it, how to avoid it. If you have it and how to minimise it and treat it. Well Done!

The course is designed keeping in mind the holistic management.The sessions have a lot of information but with the help of short video clips it becomes engaging unlike many other course which contain long videos.I would like to earn a certificate of completion for this and look forward if you come up with a diabetes educator course.

It's easy to understand and everyone should do. I highly recommended ! You can learn about diabetes, gestacional diabetes and how to live and support family or friends who has diabetes. Luckily I don't have diabetes but my grandfather has and now I know how to help him better.

I enjoyed a lot the course. My son is type 1 diabetes and it was awesome to remember some details about it and improve my knowledge as well. I think everybody even with diabetes or not should join this course. It's so well explained and you have a chance to learn more about the types of diabetes; how to control , how to deal with it and how to help people .
