Defeat Diabetes has proudly announced a partnership with Diabetes Australia. The collaboration marks a pivotal moment in the fight to halt the rising epidemic of type 2 diabetes, with both organisations uniting their efforts to foster hope for remission through dietary changes for Australians with type 2 diabetes.

  • The Australian National Diabetes Strategy 2021-30 has highlighted the need to consider offering more intensive dietary interventions, including low carbohydrate diets, to people living with type 2 diabetes aiming for remission.
  • 88% of Defeat Diabetes members in 2023 reported improved glycaemic control following TCR*.
  • Over 9,500 people have participated in the Defeat Diabetes Low Carb Program, with many reporting positive health outcomes.

Justine Cain, CEO of Diabetes Australia, shared her thoughts on the partnership: “The opportunity to attempt remission from type 2 diabetes gives people significant cause for hope. Diabetes Australia is dedicated to improving the lives of people living with diabetes and those at risk.”

Since 2021, Defeat Diabetes has been at the forefront of therapeutic carbohydrate restriction (TCR) aimed at achieving remission from type 2 diabetes. Recent results show our impact, with 2 in 3 members returning blood glucose levels to the non-diabetes range*. By partnering with Diabetes Australia, Defeat Diabetes aims to effectively reach and engage the 1.3 million Australians living with type 2 diabetes.

The partnership between Defeat Diabetes and Diabetes Australia is underpinned by a shared vision: to empower individuals with type 2 diabetes to take control of their health and strive for remission. 

“Defeat Diabetes is giving thousands of Australians the opportunity to improve their blood glucose levels and achieve remission from type 2 diabetes and pre-diabetes,” said Defeat Diabetes founder Dr Peter Brukner OAM.

Defeat Diabetes Low Carb Program results

While our self-reported member survey results demonstrate positive results, we’ve partnered with La Trobe University to conduct a clinical study of the Defeat Diabetes Low Carb Program’s outcomes. With promising early results and initial data available in the next few months. Dr Brukner expressed confidence in the trial, saying “Early results from the La Trobe trial indicate that the Defeat Diabetes Low Carb Program can improve blood glucose, reduce medications and achieve weight loss and sustained remission from type 2 diabetes.”
