November 14 is world diabetes day. Dr Udul Hewage, a senior lecturer at Flinders University, and a senior consultant and diabetes specialist at Flinders Medical Centre, joins the conversation to talk about diabetes.

Dr Hewage explains that children as young as 10 are diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. He believes the screen time for diagnosis should be reduced and that children should be encouraged to be more active. He also speaks about some of the myths relating to diabetes.
