280 Australians develop diabetes every day.

That’s one person every five minutes. This July promote diabetes awareness among your friends and loved ones and urge them to take preventative health measures to prevent this disease.

What is diabetes?
Diabetes is a serious complex condition which can affect the entire body. Diabetes requires daily self care and if complications develop, diabetes can have a significant impact on quality of life and can reduce life expectancy. While there is currently no cure for diabetes, you can live an enjoyable life by learning about the condition and effectively managing it.

There are different types of diabetes; all types are complex and serious. The three main types of diabetes are type 1, type 2 and gestational diabetes.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO DISCUSS DIABETES WITH YOUR DOCTOR, PLEASE BOOK A 30 MINUTE CONSULTATION

Forearms are integral to hand and arm movement, so pain in this region can be highly disruptive to daily life. Forearm pain can result from a number of different causes, each requiring a different treatment approach.

The forearms are composed of the radius and ulna bones, which span the length of the forearm to intersect at the wrist joint. The location means that the forearm is intrinsically involved in a range of everyday arm or hand movements.

As a result of this, injury or discomfort in the forearm can have a wide-ranging impact on mobility and interfere with daily functioning. For example, forearm pain can make it difficult to type on a keyboard or grip an item with the hand.
