What is Diabetes?

Diabetes happens when the body has high blood sugar. This happens when the body needs insulin. Insulin is a chemical that turns food into energy in the body.

There are two main types of diabetes:

Type 1 Diabetes

Type 1 happens when the pancreas stops making any insulin.

Most people get it when young.

Without insulin, blood sugar goes very high and makes the body pee a lot, drink a ton, and feel hungry all the time.

To treat Type 1 the body must take insulin shots every day to stay healthy. We don’t know exactly what causes Type 1 yet or how to stop it fully once it starts.

Type 2 Diabetes

Type 2 diabetes means the body does not use insulin well.

This makes blood sugar rise slowly over many years, usually in adults.

Being overweight, inactive, eating poorly and having diabetes in one’s family increases risk for Type 2.

Many people have Type 2 for a long time before noticing signs. Staying active and eating healthy foods can prevent Type 2 diabetes.

Once diagnosed, taking medicine, using insulin shots or changing lifestyle habits helps manage it.


Face-to-Face vs. Online Diabetes Training: Choosing the Right Fit

Both face-to-face and online diabetes training offer important information for managing type 2 diabetes, but they suit different learning styles and situations. At Caring for Care, we have both in-person/virtual training and the online training.  You are currently on our level 2 online diabetes course page.

Here’s a simple guide to help you choose which option is best for you:

Face-to-Face Training:


    • Direct Interaction: You can ask questions straight to the teacher and get personal feedback.
    • Learn from Others: Share experiences and learn from other people in the class.
    • Hands-on Practice: Practice skills like checking blood sugar in a group setting.
    • Social Interaction: Build a sense of community and support among people with diabetes.


    • Limited Flexibility: You need to attend classes at specific times and places.
    • Cost: It might be more expensive than online courses.
    • Travel: You might need to travel, which can take time and cost money.
    • Limited Accessibility: It might not be available in all areas.

Online Training:


    • Convenience: Learn from anywhere, at any time, and at your own pace.
    • Flexibility: Go over lessons as many times as you need and focus on areas you find difficult.
    • Cost-Effective: Usually cheaper than face-to-face courses.
    • Wide Selection: Many courses are available from different providers.
    • Multimedia Learning: Often includes videos, animations, and interactive elements.


    • Limited Interaction: Fewer chances to talk directly to teachers or classmates.
    • Self-Discipline Required: You need to motivate yourself to keep up with the course.
    • Technical Challenges: You might face issues with internet connections or learning platforms.
    • Less Social Interaction: Fewer chances to connect with others for support.

Choosing between face-to-face and online diabetes training depends on your personal preferences, how you learn best, and your circumstances. If you prefer direct interaction and hands-on practice, face-to-face might be better. If you need flexibility and want to learn at your own pace, online training could be the right choice.
