Catalyst - How to Beat Diabetes
Dr Joanna McMillan is driven to help people have healthy lives by making the right food choices. She’s on a mission to help stem the onslaught of Type 2 diabetes, by targeting the two million Australians at high risk of developing the chronic illness. Many have no idea the silent killer is brewing within, even less know there’s a powerful pill-free solution at hand that’s affordable and adaptable.
In this Catalyst, Dr McMillan joins with leading scientists from the University of Sydney’s Charles Perkins Centre to develop individual programs for four people on the brink of getting Type 2. Jo tailors a plan of attack for each person and uncovers insights into how nutrition and exercise affect glucose levels; what role sleep and stress can play; and why competing sumo wrestlers are metabolically fitter than all our participants. Can our participants stick to the plan and combat the onset of Australia’s fastest growing chronic illness? Some will demonstrate how inexpensive programs can counter the high costs of diabetes.
