Are you at risk of type 2 diabetes? The Australian Type 2 Diabetes Risk Assessment (AusDrisk) Tool is a quick test for people to assess their own risk of type 2 diabetes. The AusDrisk Tool can be used to test your family and friends to see if they are at risk as there are quite a few people walking around with diabetes and may not realise.

National Diabetes Week Seminar

NDW-doors

Each year Diabetes SA holds a Seminar to mark National Diabetes Week and highlight the many different aspects of diabetes management to support people living with diabetes, and their families.

Diabetes SA's National Diabetes Week Seminar theme for 2017 is Diabetes Behind Closed Doors. Diabetes affects every part of someone's life and can create issues that can be difficult to discuss with family, friends or health care providers. These sensitive issues may be embarrassing but are very important to discuss as many of these conditions are treatable.
