Living With Diabetes

Who is this program for?

Rehab Solutions Australia's Living with Diabetes program is for those patients who have been diagnosed or at risk of Type 2 Diabetes.

 

Type 2 Diabetes is a health condition in which the body becomes resistant to the insulin produced by the body or is unable to produce enough insulin which can cause a build up of glucose in the blood. Too much blood glucose can cause a variety of health issues which include damage to the blood vessels and nerves leading to such complications as heart attacks, strokes, ulcers and amputations.

People who are at risk of type 2 diabetes include those who:

  • have a family history of type 2 diabetes

  • are older - risk increases with age

  • are overweight

  • have high blood pressure

  • have an Aboriginal or Torres Straight Islander background

  • have a Pacific Islander, Indian or Chinese background
