Listen: Ally Barnes chats with Dr Michael Mosley about tackling type 2 diabetes
Almost 200 Australians are diagnosed with type 2 diabetes every single day. For a while, the advice has been to manage the disease with medication, but the conversation is changing.
Renowned doctor and trusted medical journalist Dr Michael Mosley is the host of a new series called Australia’s Health Revolution which premieres Wednesday 13 October at 7.30pm on SBS.
It’s all about tackling our nation’s fastest-growing chronic disease, type 2 diabetes.
Dr Mosley puts his own body on the line to demonstrate the latest science and to show just how quickly you can eat your way into, and out of, ill-health.
“I believe if you are going to convince people of something, and ask others to go on a diet, you should do it as well in solidarity,” Dr Mosley said.
Australia’s Health Revolution with Dr Michael Mosley premieres Wednesday 13 October at 7.30pm on SBS and SBS On Demand.
