2 Simple ways to prevent Diabetes
According to recent statistics, nearly 1.7 million Australians are living with diabetes—and with the cost of diabetes in Australia estimated to be a whopping $14.6 billion annually, there’s more reason than ever to take preventive measures. Approximately 85% of diabetes cases in Australia are Type 2; this means patients’ bodies are able to produce insulin, but either they’re not producing enough, or their bodies aren’t using it effectively. While there is evidence that family history plays a part, lifestyle is also a key contributor.
