Type 2 Diabetes Is On The Increase
The Australian Diabetes Council warns that if new cases of type 2 diabetes continue at their current rate, Australian health will take a serious battering.
Mapping the rates of the chronic disease and heart disease in NSW, Australian Diabetes Council found that one Australian was being diagnosed every five minutes which means 290 Australians are discovering every day that they have type 2 diabetes. Recent statistics show the cost to our community of type 2 at the moment is over $10.3 billion.
If diabetes continues to grow at this rate, the cost to the Australian health care system by 2030, will consume the entire federal budget of this country.
Further, research shows that type 2 diabetes sufferers were about four times more likely to develop cardiovascular disease than those who do not have diabetes. These results reflect a number of serious health care issues, including poor eating and exercise habits.
