Are you one of the 1 in 4 Australians over the age of 25 that are bordering on a diagnosis of Type 2 Diabetes*?
Australian research shows that people with diabetes are more likely to have high blood pressure, be overweight or obese, have high “bad” cholesterol and low “good” cholesterol levels.
Many of the health complications from both Pre Diabetes and Diabetes can be prevented or improved through diet and lifestyle changes.
Small changes like losing 5-10% of your body weight and keeping it off can reduce your chance of progressing from “Pre Diabetes” to “Diabetes” by 50%**!
Other factors like being more physically active, and dietary changes like increasing fruit and vegetable intake, reducing salt and saturated fat, can all help to improve the negative health complications of both pre diabetes and diabetes.
Advice from your dietitian can help you to learn about how pre-diabetes and help you to modify your diet and lifestyle to optimize your health.
Appointments are available on Saturday from 8am to 12pm.
