Diabetes is a chronic condition that affects millions of people worldwide, and seafarers are no exception. People who work at sea often face unique challenges, including disrupted routines, limited access to medical care, difficulty maintaining a healthy diet, and getting regular physical activity which increases the risk of seafarers for developing diabetes. These challenges can also make it difficult for diabetic seafarers to manage their condition and increase the risk of complications.

By the end of this course, learners are expected to understand diabetes; understand their own risk of developing diabetes; how to prevent themselves from developing diabetes and how to manage their condition (if they have it).
