This online, self-paced course will address both the medical science of diabetes and the major epidemiological issues surrounding this often misunderstood disease. The course will focus on the latest knowledge about Type II diabetes. What causes it, both in terms of lifestyle factors and biological factors? What are its physical effects? Why has it become the No. 1 cause of kidney failure, leading many people to a painful life on dialysis treatments? What can be done to combat it? On the public health front, the course will examine why Type II diabetes is growing so rapidly in America, particularly among young people, and examine the public and private costs. Finally, the course will examine the various efforts government and private medical establishments have made to fight Type II diabetes, and why the efforts seem so futile.
