Living With Type 2 Diabetes

I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes five years ago, and I've had to make considerable changes to my lifestyle to maintain my health since I was diagnosed. I started this blog to share my experience of coming to terms with having type 2 diabetes and what I've learned on my personal journey. I share details of the lifestyle changes I've made, including giving up smoking and eating more wholefoods, and my personal experience of using alternative treatments, such as acupuncture and herbal medicine. I also post about new treatments that are becoming available for type 2 diabetes. I hope you find my blog useful and informative.

Planning to Travel Out of Australia? Why You Need to Have Your Yellow Fever Vaccination

If you live in Australia and you plan to travel to the tropical or subtropical areas of South America or Africa, you'll need to receive your yellow fever vaccination before you travel. The same is true if you plan to travel to Australia from any of those regions. Once you've been vaccinated for yellow fever, you'll receive an International Certificate of Vaccination or Prophylaxis. That certificate will allow you to travel to other countries, especially those that require the certification.
