A message from our founder
Dr Peter Brukner OAM
More than 120,000 Australians developed type 2 diabetes in the past year.
Although type 2 diabetes is often treated with medication and modifications to diet, it is a serious, life threatening condition.
It's important for you to know whether you're at risk of type 2 diabetes. If you have an increased risk, you can act quickly to avoid many of the complications associated with type 2 diabetes.
