Description

Diabetes is a complex endocrine disorder that affects the body's ability to regulate glucose, and insulin secretion and utilization. Loss of normal insulin physiology results in changes in how fuel is used in the body, and how storage and hydration occurs. Many clients with diabetes have macro- or micro-vascular complications from their disease, which alters their ability to fuel appropriately, maintain hydration status and train. This course will review type 1 and type 2 diabetes and the metabolic complications that are associated with this disorder.

    Can someone tell me is the DVD different from the Video? I can't seem to pass this test and I took it time after time. It's really not that hard but, something is not right. I looked at the video and read the manual and still it say, you did not pass. Do you have to get all questions right? It does not tell you the ones you got right or the ones you got wrong. I'm needing help and don't know what to do.
