Diabetes is a serious lifelong health condition that occurs when the amount of glucose, or sugar, in the blood is too high.
If left untreated, high blood glucose levels can cause serious health complications.
Is this the right diabetes awareness course for me?
Diabetes can develop in anyone at any point in their life although there are certain groups and age ranges where it is more common.
