This World Diabetes Day I’m encouraging you to come in and check your risk of developing this serious medical condition.
Type 2 diabetes is a rapidly growing national problem. 100,000 Australians developed diabetes in the past year and type 2 diabetes accounts for around 85% of all diabetes. There are over 1 million Australians who have type 2 diabetes.
Early identification and management of people with type 2 diabetes is very important. Thirst, lethargy, change in weight and passing urine frequently are some of the common symptoms of diabetes. Checking your risk for diabetes is simple and quick and can be done with your GP.
If you have any questions or concerns about diabetes or would like to have your risk checked pop by and see me in clinic today.
