Our experts Jason Lee (physiotherapist) and Dr Jane Fyfield (geriatrician) break down both diseases, providing practical advice for people who have Type 2 Diabetes or are pre-diabetic, and explain ways to minimise the risks of dementia and how an early diagnosis can assist you to take control of your life.
