Special Edition for Prediabetes and Type 2 Diabetes

  • A caring community to keep you motivated

Gary was diagnosed with prediabetes - lost 40 kg*

When Gary experienced concerning symptoms like hazy vision he visited his GP and was diagnosed with prediabetes. His GP recommended he lose weight to try to alleviate his health problems, so Gary joined the CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet. 

With the CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet Gary lost 40 kg* and today he is no longer suffering from prediabetes: 

"One thing I appreciate most about losing the weight is the health aspect," Gary says. "I'm a lot fitter and I'm sleeping better so when I wake up in the morning I feel more refreshed and ready to tackle the day."

*In 18 months. Individual results may vary.
