About this Course

Type 2 diabetes (mate huka) currently affects almost 300,000 people in Aotearoa, while approximately 900,000 have prediabetes.

Substantial inequities exist with Māori, Pacific and South-Asian people bearing both the highest burden of disease and the poorest health outcomes.

Following completion of this short course, you will:

  • Review diagnosis of type 2 diabetes (T2D) and individualised glycaemic targets.
  • Understand non-pharmacological management of T2D.
  • Develop knowledge of the non-insulin pharmacological therapies for T2D, focusing on the SGLT2 inhibitors and GLP1 agonists.

Note that this module covers non-insulin management of T2D (mate huka) for adults.
