    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

    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.

    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.

    I have read and completed the course for type 2 diabetes but was hoping to find an actual diet plan,am currently using Dr. Moseley book on diabetes

    Hi Monica, we don’t give a specific diet plan or advocate on one particular diet as everybody is different and what works for one person, might not work for someone else. It’s about finding something that works for you and is sustainable in the long-term. We give details of all of the different eating plans and some weight-loss strategies, organisations and digital tools to make people aware of all of the different resources available. I hope that helps and great to hear that you have completed the course and doing some further reading to find something that works for you. Best wishes, Kirsten πŸ™‚

    On the whole, a good course, but not the same as personal interaction. It’s nice to bounce ideas about in a group discussion.
