Type 2 Diabetes, sometimes called the "lifestyle disease", affects over a million Australians.

Now there are concerns children and young adults are at elevated risks of developing it.

Experts say lockdowns can increase a person's chances of developing Type 2 diabetes, amid unprecedented levels of stay-at-home orders and restricted activity.


 

Highlights

  • Type 2 Diabetes is often linked to lifestyle and eating habits.
  • A new European study has found the way individuals control their Type 2 diabetes has worsened.
  • Unhealthy eating habits, more screen time, and less physical activity is to blame, coupled with increased stress and anxiety.
