More than half of all Australians will be diagnosed with some form of skin cancer by the age of 70. The most common cancers can usually be removed fairly simply. Malignant melanomas are less common but more serious as they are likely to spread without early treatment.

Doctors at Ontario Medical Clinic perform regular skin cancer checks and monitor any new or changing lesions. If suspicious lesions are detected they will either be removed in the surgery or patients may be referred to specialists for excision. It is recommended that people over the age of 50, especially those with fair skin have regular skin checks.

Diabetes is a serious and complex condition which can affect the entire body.

There are different types of diabetes; all types are complex and serious. The three main types of diabetes are:

Type 1 diabetes is characterised by a lack of insulin production. Insulin is a hormone that is needed to convert sugar, starches and other food into energy essential for general day to day life. Long healthy lives are achievable through insulin therapy, exercise, nutrition and proper blood glucose management techniques.

Type 2 diabetes is much more common than type 1 diabetes, and accounts for around 90% of all diabetes worldwide. A type 2 diabetic means that the body does not use insulin properly, this is called insulin resistance. At first the pancreas will make extra insulin but over time it isn’t able to keep up and can’t make enough to keep the blood glucose at normal levels. The cells are starved for energy and gradually high levels may hurt your eyes, kidneys, nerves or heart.

A third type of diabetes is gestational diabetes. This type is characterised by hyperglycaemia, or raised blood sugar, which is first recognised during pregnancy.

Diabetes can be prevented. Thirty minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity on most days and a healthy diet can drastically reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Our doctors use medications if required, encourage increased exercise and provide patient counselling. Doctors refer to Dieticians, Diabetic Educators and Endocrinologists who specialise in diabetes. These practitioners work together with patients to optimise diabetic control.
