Diabetes


What is Diabetes?

In people with diabetes, blood glucose levels are higher than normal because the body either does not produce enough insulin or cannot use insulin properly. The body needs insulin to turn the food we eat into energy. There are three main types of diabetes, Type 1, Type 2 and Gestational Diabetes, but other rarer types also exist.

Type 1 diabetes is an auto - immune disease that occurs when the pancreas cannot produce enough insulin because the cells that make the insulin have been destroyed by the body's own immune system.

Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes, representing approximately 90% of people with diabetes in Australia. With Type 2 Diabetes the pancreas makes insulin, but it does not work as well as it should and upsets the balance of glucose in the body.

Gestational Diabetes is a form of diabetes that occurs in around 5% of pregnancies, and is diagnosed when higher than normal blood glucose levels appear for the first time during pregnancy.

Are you at risk?

In Australia, nearly two thirds of men and half of all women are overweight or obese. This is a key factor in the alarming rise of type 2 diabetes. Yet up to 60 per cent of diabetes cases could be prevented, or at least delayed, by people maintaining a healthy weight. The main keys to long-term weight loss and reducing your waist measurement are healthy eating and regular physical activity.
