Treating Type 2 Diabetes & Osteoarthritis with Exercise Medicine

Event: -

Do you have Type 2 Diabetes or are you pre-diabetic? Are you preparing for hip or knee joint replacement surgery? If so, we invite you to engage in Chronic Care Australia's innovative exercise medicine program.

Chronic Care Australia (CCA) seeks to determine if our 24-week exercise medicine program can achieve remission in people with Type 2 Diabetes and/or reduce the blood sugar level (BSL) profile in people who are pre-diabetic and scheduled to undergo surgical procedures.

The presence of diabetes negatively impacts joint surgery outcomes by decreasing functional responses, increasing infection rates and increasing revision surgeries.

 
This real-world observational pilot program aims to:

  • Reduce medical risks prior to and during surgery.

  • Increase mental and physical health outcomes following surgery.

  • Reduce post-operative recovery time.

  • Achieve remission in participants who are pre-diabetic or have Type 2 Diabetes.
     
    More than 10% of Australians aged 65 have been diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes. 2 million more Australians are pre-diabetic. Furthermore, 43.7% of this patient group has some form of osteoarthritis.
