Living Well with Diabetes and HIV


How do we manage living well with HIV and diabetes?

Michael and Tex sit down with Cynthia Ziebel from Diabetes Victoria to discuss how diabetes affects our communities in Victoria. We look at risk factors, testing, and how to manage diabetes to live well. Later we are joined by HIV activist and friend of the program David Menadue to explore his lived experience as a person living with both HIV and diabetes. We discuss early HIV treatments, balancing treatments, and looking after yourself.
