Don't suffer - LIVE
Diabetes affects approximately one million Australians and can cause a multitude of problems that can affect the feet, eyes, kidneys and cardiovascular health.

In 2010, data showed that only around half of those with diabetes were able to sufficiently control their blood glucose levels. Because of this, in the next 20 years, it is estimated that the numbers will continue rise until over 3 million Australians are diagnosed.

The Diabetes Expo aims to provide those that have been diagnosed, or parents of children who have been diagnosed, with all the necessary information to help sustain the complications that come with diabetes, and to live as healthy and happy as possible. Held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre on February 25th, this Expo will leave you feeling confident in your ability to live a happy and healthy life, and that diabetes shouldn't bring you down.

Sessions will cover topics such as:

The latest diet trends, and the pros and cons that come with them, according to experts.
Food labels: how to decode them and ensure that you are choosing the healthiest options.
The possibility of reversing type 2 diabetes.
Simple ways to include more physical activity in your day-to-day life.

Medical doctor and TV presenter Dr. Andrew Rochford will be giving the keynote presentation.
