Diabetes & Heart Problems
The focus areas are people affected by all types of diabetes, this includes people with type 1 diabetes, people with type 2 diabetes, women with gestational diabetes, people with other forms of diabetes, their families and carers, and people at risk of developing diabetes.
Diabetes is a complex condition, which can affect the entire body. Understanding diabetes is important even if you don’t have it. You most likely know someone who has diabetes; maybe a family member or a 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. As a community we need to foster a culture of shared understanding of what diabetes is and be part of the solution that turns the diabetes epidemic around.
Coronary heart disease (CHD) affects many people and may cause angina (chest pain) and heart attack. Risk factors for heart disease include smoking, diabetes, obesity, family history and age. By following a healthy lifestyle and taking medicines as prescribed by the doctor, you can reduce the overall risk of developing coronary heart disease.
The main aim of a check-up is to detect illness at an early stage, or better still prevent illness occurring in the first place. It is surprising how many conditions are picked up on routine medicals.
