Did you know that type 2 diabetes is the single biggest cause of kidney failure in Australia? 100,000 Australians are diagnosed with diabetes each year: one every five minutes. And hundreds of thousands more are thought to go undiagnosed.
Dr. Peter Brukner OAM, founder of Defeat Diabetes, joins kidney disease educator Yvonne Farquharson from Filter Your Future to discuss why in 2019 diabetes caused 39% of chronic kidney disease cases in Australia. And most people didn’t even know they had it!
We’ll chat about the signs and symptoms to look for, and what you can do to keep yourself healthy.
