Type 2 Diabetes is the fastest growing chronic disease in Australia and has reached epidemic status. Nearly one in four Australian adults is at risk or has already developed the condition. While symptoms can go unnoticed as the disease develops gradually, approximately one in three people with prediabetes will develop type 2 diabetes.

The School of Medicine and Pharmacology at the Royal Perth Hospital  is conducting a research study on protein rich Lupin and its effect on type 2 diabetes. Participants who have type 2 diabetes will be adding Lupin into their diet with the goal of lowering the need for additional medications and medical intervention.
