Type 2 Diabetes is one of the largest and most prominent health issues in Australia, accounting for 92 per cent of diabetes cases. Diabetes is associated with a number of health complications, including cardiovascular, eye and kidney disease.
In the past 15 years, incidences of Type 2 diabetes in Australia have more than doubled. This is reflective of the obesity epidemic in Australia, with negative lifestyle choices like poor diet and nutrition, physical inactivity and stress all contributing to the increase in cases.
However, international evidence has shown that early lifestyle intervention through modifying aspects like diet and exercise has a considerable effect on high risk patients, reducing incidences by up to 58 per cent.
Having a diabetes risk assessment at a Reliance Medical practice is a starting point towards living a healthier and happier lifestyle, It allow us to assess whether you need medical intervention and how we can support you along your journey.
