Diabetics are used to the idea of blood testing, but many type 2 diabetics and any type 1s whose weight is on the increase may be advised to keep an eye on their blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

Metabolic Syndrome factors

Type 2 diabetes is often one of five factors that indicate the presence of Metabolic Syndrome (this is known as ‘chaos’ in Australia).

This syndrome presents as some or all of the following ‘highs’: high blood sugar, high body mass index, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and high hip-to-waist ratio.

Calculate BMI, body fat and more

With just a tug on its handles, the Omron Body Composition Monitor (BF500) can calculate an array of body readings, including you BMI, body fat percentage, visceral fat levels and skeletal muscle percentage.

All sounds a bit high-powered in fact, but these might give extra insight to those at extra risk of the effects of being overweight and having diabetes.
