With diabetes regarded as a global epidemic, it is little wonder the medical world is investing massive resources in the prevention and treatment of the disease.

More than 2 million Australians are affected with diabetes, with Diabetes Type 2 being the most common form.  Widely known as the ‘lifestyle disease’, Type 2 Diabetes is connected to people who carry excess weight around the abdomen, if it runs in the family, high blood pressure and high cholesterol.
