How Common is Diabetes in Australia?

According to Diabetes Australia, over 300 Australians develop diabetes every day. That’s one person every 5 minutes. Diabetes is a complex condition that can affect the entire body. Diabetes, may it be Type 1 or Type 2. It can be managed with the help of your healthcare professional. Whether or not you are diagnosed with diabetes, understanding the condition can help better manage it as well as ensure better quality of life for yourself and your loved ones. It is highly likely you know someone with diabetes, maybe a family member or friend. This is because diabetes has reached epidemic proportions in Australia and globally.

Community awareness of the difference between type 1 and type 2 diabetes is still surprisingly limited. Therefore as a community, it is vital to foster a culture of shared understanding of what diabetes is and be part of the solution that turns the diabetes epidemic around.

Types of Diabetes We Treat:

Type 2 diabetes is a long-term condition that happens because of sugar / glucose irregularities in the body. It can result in too much sugar circulating in the blood, and lead to disorders of the circulatory, nervous and immune systems.

While type 2 diabetes is more common in older adults, childhood obesity has increased more cases of this condition in younger people. There's no cure for type 2 diabetes except for healthier lifestyles and diabetes medications or insulin therapy.

Gestational diabetes is a type of diabetes diagnosed during pregnancy. Like other types of diabetes, it affects your body’s use of sugar. This causes high blood sugar that can affect your pregnancy and your baby's health.

However, this can be better managed during pregnancy by eating healthy foods, exercising and, if necessary, taking medication. Controlling your blood sugar can keep you and your bub healthy and prevent a difficult delivery.

Prediabetes happens when your body produces a higher than normal blood sugar level. Without making healthier lifestyle changes, it can cause a higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes in both adults and children.

Healthier food intake and regular exercise can help regulate your blood sugar and help prevent type 2 diabetes. It is also important to visit your diabetes clinic to have yourself checked to confirm whether or not you have diabetes.
