Type 2, Toowoomba

David is 69 and was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes 20 years ago. Both his mother and grandmother lived with diabetes. “I was overweight and deskbound,” David said of his life before diabetes. He was well-advised by his doctor when he was diagnosed. “I controlled my diet and increased my exercise,” David said. He’s now on daily medication and enjoying complication-free good health. “I keep very active each day, have a regular walking program and also run with a low-carb diet,” he said.
