"We’re delighted to partner with Diabetes Australia and reach more people who might benefit from a low carb approach to type 2 diabetes management and remission.

"Defeat Diabetes gives Australians an alternative opportunity to improve blood glucose levels."

Diabetes Australia is a partner of Defeat Diabetes in reducing the impact of type 2 diabetes. Diabetes Australia does not promote or encourage any single diet or eating plan and there is no one-size-fits-all approach to living well with diabetes. People with diabetes should make their own, informed choices about their diabetes management (including eating plans) in consultation with their diabetes healthcare team.
