Diabetes

Diabetes is the fastest growing chronic condition in Australia- approximately 1 person every 5 minutes develops the condition. The group of metabolic disorders are characterised by a reduction in the body’s ability to produce insulin (type I), or to use insulin (type II). Those with diabetes may experience frequent infections due to decreased immunity; abrasions that are slow to heal due to loss of skin strength and elasticity; tingling, pain or lack of feeling in limbs due to nerve damage (neuropathy); loss of sight (retinopathy); damage to the kidneys (nephropathy); and cardiac effects.

Early intervention including appointments with relevant health professionals, adaptive equipment and self-management skills are crucial in reducing damage to body systems and organs and maintaining an overall state of wellbeing.
