    I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes last week, I was told by a nurse and given two websites to look at and sent on my way. I have no idea what I should do next or what I can and can’t do regarding food, drink etc not a happy chappy.

    • Hi Tommy, it’s always a shock when you are diagnosed with diabetes. I hope you find this course useful in helping you with the next steps and finding out more about how to manage your T2D.
      Best wishes,

    This course is much better than the one called “Diabetes Epidemic” available on Future Learn, where the videos were far too long, dull, boring and geared at professionals.
    This course contains similar information but in a much easier to read, navigate and digest format.

    Very helpful. I have made a few comments on the way through but wish something like this had been available when I was first diagnosed
