Diabetes is a complex condition which can significantly impact on an individuals quality of life and can reduce life expectancy. There is currently no cure for diabetes, but you can still live an enjoyable life by managing it effectively.
According to Diabetes Australia, all types of diabetes are increasing in prevalence.
There are different types of diabetes; type 1, type 2 and gestational diabetes.
Type 1 diabetes is an auto-immune condition and is not linked to modifiable lifestyle factors.
On the contrary, type 2 diabetes is a progressive condition where the body becomes resistant or unable to produce insulin.
Insulin is a hormone made by the pancreas that allows your body to use glucose from food for energy or to store for future use. Insulin helps regulate blood sugar so that it doesn't become too high or too low." (1)
