In Australia, nearly 850,000 people have been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. What is astonishing is that another 850,000 people are thought to have type 2 diabetes but they don't know it! It is a story that is repeated across the Western world: the diabetes epidemic.
While the incidence of chronic disease is rising with our aging population, there's a reason why diabetes deserves special attention. Preventing and managing diabetes is important because diabetes affects every major system within your body if left unchecked or untreated. As you can see in the infographic below, this includes your heart health, your brain and nervous system, your digestive system, your eyes...even your skin!
