Diabetes is a complex condition that occurs when the body can’t maintain healthy glucose levels in the blood.
Type 2 diabetes is the fastest growing chronic condition in Australia. Many Australians will live with type 2 diabetes for up to seven years before being diagnosed. More than 500,000 Australians are living with silent, undiagnosed type 2 diabetes.
The earlier people are diagnosed, the more time they have to live well and reduce their risk of complications. You can find out your risk of developing type 2 diabetes, via the Diabetes Australia risk calculator.
At Shoal Bay Pharmacy we have a number of products and services for people living with diabetes including diabetes meds checks, NDSS products and blood glucose monitors.
