The World Health Organization has estimated that more than 600 million adults worldwide are now classified as obese, which is defined as a BMI of ≥30 kg/m2. The rising prevalence of obesity has led to a simultaneous increase in the prevalence of type 2 diabetes, and the term “diabesity” has been coined to describe those with type 2 diabetes and obesity. The aim of this review is to describe the prevalence of obesity and type 2 diabetes in Australia and summarise practical aspects of weight management. It will also explore the role of healthcare professionals in weight management and the prevention of the complications of diabesity.
