There are different types of diabetes; the three main types of diabetes are type 1, type 2 and gestational diabetes. At this stage, only about 58% of type 2 diabetes can be prevented.

Type 1

At present, type 1 diabetes cannot be prevented. We know that type 1 diabetes involves an auto-immune reaction where the cells in the pancreas that produce insulin are destroyed. We do not know what triggers this auto-immune reaction nor do we know how to prevent it. Scientists are still investigating why the body’s insulin-producing cells are destroyed and what environmental factors are involved.

Type 2

We know that type 2 diabetes involves a complex disruption to glucose metabolism including insulin resistance in cells, and more gradual loss of pancreatic function and insulin production.

It is estimated that up to 58% of type 2 diabetes can be prevented. People at risk of type 2 diabetes can delay and even prevent the condition by following a healthy lifestyle by:

  • Maintaining a healthy weight
  • Regular physical activity
  • Making healthy food choices
  • Managing blood pressure
  • Managing cholesterol levels
  • Not smoking.

Being overweight or obese is one risk factor for type 2 diabetes; it is not a direct cause. Some people who are overweight may not develop type 2 diabetes while some people who are of a healthy weight will develop type 2 diabetes.

Many Australians, particularly those over 40, are at risk of developing type 2 diabetes through lifestyle factors such as nutrition and physical activity. Family history and genetics also play a role in type 2 diabetes. Diabetes Australia encourages everyone to check your risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

Prevention program in Victoria – Life!

Diabetes Victoria is coordinating the Victorian Government funded program called Life! Taking Action on Diabetes and is a new evidence-based type 2 diabetes prevention program targeting people 50 years of age and over. Lifestyle courses have been shown to prevent type 2 diabetes in up to 58% of people at high risk.
