Take this to heart
YOU’RE NOT ALONE
About 280 Aussies develop diabetes every day – one person every five minutes. And for every four people diagnosed, someone else is living with diabetes but doesn’t know. The longer diabetes goes undiagnosed, the more it can impact your overall health.
IT'S YOUR MOVE
Continuing or starting regular physical activity will help lower your short- and long-term BGLs and can also help certain diabetes medications work more effectively. Plus, along with a healthy diet, losing weight – as little as 5 per cent of your body weight – can also have a positive impact.
Wondering where to start? Combined with advice from your healthcare team, you’ve made a great first step. In this (and every!) issue of Diabetic Living, you’ll find practical, helpful advice, expert responses to questions that might sound familiar and a whole heap of healthy recipes. ■
