What is Type 2 Diabetes?

Type 2 diabetes is a condition which causes your body to become resistant to insulin. If left untreated this resistance causes increased blood sugar levels, increased blood fat levels and muscle breakdown which can lead to serious health problems.

Many Australians, particularly those over 40, are at risk of developing type 2 diabetes through lifestyle factors such as nutrition and physical activity. Family history and genetics also play a role in type 2 diabetes.
