1.5 million Australians are living with type 2 diabetes. It's a staggering number, and it's on the rise.
Sadly, people with diabetes are at high risk of developing other serious health complications. They are twice as likely to suffer sudden cardiac death compared to those without the condition. This is the case even if they manage their diabetes, and overall health well.
We are working to change this, and you can help us!
Researchers at the Baker Heart and Diabetes Institute, have a have found that a drug, already approved for another medical condition, was able to curb the development of heart disease in people with diabetes.
The treatment is already available on the market, which means that with further testing and research, its use for millions of Australians living diabetes could be available in the near future!
Your kind gift of $50 today can provide our hard working researchers the resources they need to fast track this research and make it available to the people who need it most.
