Step 1 covers the basics of diabetes. There are five lessons in the chapter. You start with understanding what is going on inside our body at a cellular level when glucose regulation is malfunctioning. Next, you will explore the conditions which cause different types of diabetes. Then an overview of how those conditions manifest in your body and the damage and problems that result from diabetes. You finish up with how to treat and manage your condition. Most of this will be a review, but it is important to make sure you have a solid foundation of understanding. And I think it is never a bad thing to revisit the basics, no matter how long since you have been diagnosed.
