This text-based activity describes a person who is experiencing some unusual, early symptoms of diabetes.
They visit their doctor who refers them to hospital where the condition is diagnosed. Questions reinforce the students’ understanding of the condition and its diagnosis.
In this lesson, students look at artificial sweeteners in carbonated drinks. This is done by comparing the density of normal and diet drinks. Artificial sweeteners in diet drinks are much more potent than glucose, and so much less needs to be added.
In this lesson, students are given basic information on the dietary requirements of a person with diabetes.
They will then do further independent research before producing a booklet for a diabetic person of their own age, detailing diet, menus and recipes.
