Diabetes is the fastest growing chronic disease in the world. 85% of people with diabetes have type 2 diabetes which can be prevented through lifestyle modification, such as healthy eating and regular daily physical activities. 62 Queenslanders are diagnosed with diabetes EVERYDAY (60 with type 2 diabetes and 2 with type 1 diabetes)! Diabetes affect people physically and emotionally. Please see your doctor and allied health professionals for more information. Together we can raise awareness of diabetes to prevent type 2 diabetes and improve diabetes managements for for people with type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes and gestational diabetes.
A Gold Coast Community Health Event on World Diabetes Day 2016 is the new goal resulting from my passion of raising awareness of diabetes and making POSITIVE DIFFERENCE in people’s lives. Looking forward to hear your brilliant ideas on how to make this happen next year. So far, I have a Neurology Researcher who will donate generous time to talk about DEMENTIA and diabetes. I also have a dentist who will give a talk on diabetes related dental problems and offer solutions on preventions and treatments.
