take control of PRE-DIABETES

If your healthcare provider tells you that you have pre-diabetes, consider yourself lucky. Why? Because you likely have a provider who realises that the earlier you take action, the better chance you have at preventing type 2 diabetes or delaying its progression.

Changing the path to type 2

According to Diabetes Australia and the National Diabetes Services Scheme (NDSS), pre-diabetes affects about 16 per cent of Australian adults. The Baker Heart and Diabetes Institute confirms that nearly 1 in 6 adults (more than 2 million individuals) over the age of 25 are living with pre-diabetes. However, evidence shows type 2 can be prevented in up to 58 per cent of the population living with pre-diabetes through exercising and eating well.

Are you or someone you love at risk of pre-diabetes?
