Take steps for diabetes – walk ‘n’ talk

Physical inactivity is an independent risk factor for type 2 diabetes!

Walking is a simple way to reduce your risk of developing type 2 diabetes. If you walk for at least 30 minutes most days of the week you will improve your health, reduce your weight and feel terrific.

Why not walk with a friend, have a chat and help motivate each other to get fit?

Type 2 Diabetes Often Runs In Families

2008 Campaign Poster

Over 850,000 Australians have been diagnosed with diabetes. The same number again may have it but not know it.

DIABETES ACT!ON is Diabetes Australia’s annual National Diabetes Action Program campaign.

It aims to increase awareness that a family history of type 2 diabetes and a large waist circumference are risk factors for type 2 diabetes.

Talk to your family about diabetes and see your doctor.
