Diabetes has become Australia's fastest growing illness, as per the information being claimed in a recent report by the Australian Diabetes Council. The report further revealed that Broken Hill has been reregistering maximum cases of diabetes in New South Wales.
In order to bring a decline in the cases, Peter Prime, who is the diabetes educator in Broken Hills, has asked Broken Hills residents that they should bring changes in their day-to-day life.
Some of the changes being recommended by him were to lead an active life, which includes regular exercise, healthy eating and trying to have home cooked meals. In addition, he said residents should remain regular for their monthly visits to doctor.
Prime said that human beings are considered to be one of the most active species on the earth, but routine life of humans do not predict the same. "We're supposed to be an active species, and we're more inactive than we've ever been before", said Prime.
There are very small things that can bring change to a person's life. Some changes like buying things, after watching their calorie content, walk and shop, which means try to go for shopping on foot rather than using other commuting modes.
