Diabetes Week 2017

Diabetes Week 2017 Diabetes Week is a great opportunity to raise awareness about all types of diabetes and how this condition affects Australians. This year, Diabetes Victoria and Exercise & Spots Science Australia (ESSA) have both launched digital awareness campaigns to coincide with National Diabetes Week 2017 (9-15 July). Diabetes Victoria - Our Invisible Condition Directed to all people affected by, or at risk of, diabetes. ESSA - Don’t Sugar Coat Diabetes Aims to raise awareness of risk factors leading to the development of diabetes. Diabetes Victoria - Our Invisible Condition Diabetes is an invisible condition that doesn’t discriminate. People with diabetes can affect all ages, genders and ethnicities. You cannot see if somebody has diabetes with around 1.7 million Australians living with diabetes. This includes over 1.2 million people registered with the National Diabetes Services Scheme, as well as an estimated 500,000 with undiagnosed type 2 diabetes. Exercise & Sports Science Australia (ESSA) - Don't Sugar Coat Diabetes Don't Sugar Coat Diabetes aims to educate the Australian public on how implementing exercise into their everyday life can reduce the risks of developing related chronic conditions, as well as make symptoms more manageable for those already diagnosed.

High Blood Pressure and Exercise

Heart Week 2017 - 30 Apr to 6 May This year Heart Week is 30 April to 6 May, and the focus is about the importance of diagnosing and treating high blood pressure. We want to encourage you and your friends / family / work colleague to talk to your local health and fitness professionals about blood pressure testing, what the results mean and what the next steps are in managing the results if they are high. The National Heart Foundation of Australia has released new hypertension guidelines that will give you the most up-to-date advice on the diagnosis and treatment of high blood pressure. You won’t know you have high blood pressure until you have it checked. There are no signs and symptoms. The good news is that high blood pressure, or hypertension, can be controlled. High blood pressure, or hypertension, remains the leading risk factor for heart disease. Uncontrolled high blood pressure can lead to a heart attack, stroke or kidney disease. Speak to your doctor or come into our clinic and speak with our Exercise Physiologist today about checking your blood pressure and keeping it heart-healthy. Why is my blood pressure measure important? Blood pressure is the pressure of blood on the walls of the arteries as the heart pumps it around the body. It naturally goes up and down all the time adjusting to the heart’s needs and what you’re doing. Your health professional takes your blood pressure to check it is at a normal healthy level. A blood pressure reading between 120/80mmHg to 139/89mmHg is in the normal to high normal range. If your readings are higher, you may be diagnosed with high blood pressure, or hypertension. This condition [...]
