Diabetes is an increasingly common condition affecting individuals from early childhood to old age. It is a chronic condition in which controlling your blood sugar and treating other risk factors significantly reduce the long-term complications of this condition.
An increasingly sedentary lifestyle and poor eating habits raises ones risk of developing diabetes. With the increasing obesity rate in Australia, the rate of diabetes is also increasing.
People suffering from type 1 and type 2 diabetes need regular monitoring of their condition with their GP, a dietician/diabetic educator, podiatrist and ophthalmologist. All these services are coordinated by your GP at Brighton Beach Medical Centre.
