Diabetes SA's 2017 National Diabetes Week Seminar

Diabetes Behind Closed Doors

On Saturday 8th July Diabetes SA held the annual National Diabetes Week Seminar at the Adelaide Convention Centre in the City Rooms 1 & 2.

This year’s seminar theme was ‘Diabetes Behind Closed Doors’ where sensitive topics such as continence, sexual health and sleep were discussed.

After the opening speech by Diabetes SA’s Executive Manager Fiona Benton, guests were introduced to Dr Ian Tucker, a urogynaecologist from Adelaide Specialist Incontinence Services. Dr Tucker discussed diabetes and continence, specifically relating to women and women’s health. However, Dr Tucker did state that a lot of the common issues of incontinence found in women, may actually appear more frequently in men as well and encouraged men to seek advice from health professionals about these issues.

After Dr Tucker’s presentation, Dr Chris Rayner, a Gastroenterologist from the University of Adelaide, spoke about the latest research into whether activating “bitter taste receptors” in the gut might help control appetite and improve blood glucose responses at a subsequent meal.

Then it was time for morning tea. During morning tea, guests were invited to enjoy some seasonal fresh fruit salad with vanilla Greek yoghurt, vegetable crudités with hummus and tandoori chicken filo with minted yoghurt which was very popular. Guests were also invited to have a look at the variety of stalls available out in the foyer from the University of Adelaide and the SA Continence Resource Centre and of course Diabetes SA.

Diabetes SA’s stall was well attended with guests having the opportunity to meet staff and collect relevant resources, especially with regards to our new and exciting education programs that are being launched in July.

After morning tea, Dr Kim Pese, a Urologist from Urological Solutions presented valuable information about diabetes and sexual health for men, including erectile dysfunction and continence. Dr Pese discussed options for men who do have these issues and what treatment can occur to help.

After Dr Pese’s presentation, Dr Siobhan Banks gave a great presentation about diabetes and sleep. Dr Banks discussed sleep apnoea, restless legs syndrome and how diabetes can affect your sleep and how your sleep can affect your diabetes management.

Feedback from the 2017 National Diabetes Week Seminar was extremely positive with many guests verbally saying that the speakers were engaging and sensitively discussed the topics so that it was comfortable for everyone to ask questions. Thank you to all that attended the seminar, we really hope you enjoyed it.

Research on intermittent energy restriction in type 2 diabetes at the University of South Australia

UniSA-logoResearchers at the University of South Australia, Professor Peter Clifton, Associate Professor Jennifer Keogh and Ms Sharayah Carter, are investigating the effects of intermittent energy restriction (5:2 diet) compared to continuous energy restriction in people with type 2 diabetes.

They are looking for volunteers to be involved in a short 4 week study where you will wear a continuous blood glucose monitor and follow the 5:2 diet.

If you have medication controlled Type 2 Diabetes, with HbA1c greater than 7%, you may be eligible to be involved, see eligible medications below:


• GLICLAZIDE: Glyade®, Mellihexal®, Nidem®, Genrx Gliclazide®

• GLICLAZIDE ER: Diamicron®, Glyade ®, Oziclide®

• GLIBENCLAMIDE: Daonil®, Glimel®

• GLIPIZIDE: Melizide®, Minidiab®

• GLIMEPIRIDE: Amaryl®, Dimirel®, Aylide®, Diapride®, Gilmepiride Sandoz®

Obtaining Consumer Comments on Submission for Subsidisation of FreeStyle Libre Flash Glucose Monitoring System

The National Diabetes Services Scheme (NDSS) was established in 1987 to provide subsidised access to products and services required for self-management of diabetes.

The Scheme currently provides subsidised syringes and needles, blood glucose test strips, urine ketone test strips and insulin pump consumables to people with diabetes.

The Department of Health is conducting an evaluation of the FreeStyle Libre Flash Glucose Monitoring (FGM) product to consider its suitability for subsidisation under the Scheme.

The cost-effectiveness evaluation will follow a methodology similar to that used by the Pharmaceutical Benefits Advisory Committee (PBAC).

The Assessment panel will take into account the clinical effectiveness, safety and cost effectiveness (value for money) of the FreeStyle Libre product compared to an appropriate comparator.

As part of their submission, the sponsor provided the Department with detailed clinical and economic data in support of the product. Click here for more detail about the product refer to 

The Assessment panel is accepting public submissions from stakeholders.

Blood glucose monitoring

Regular monitoring of your blood glucose level (BGL) is important for blood glucose management.

bgm2The blood glucose level can be estimated by using a blood glucose meter. Basically it involves obtaining a small sample of blood using a lancet device to prick the finger. This tiny drop of blood is placed onto a strip which has been inserted into the blood glucose meter. Within seconds, a result is shown on a screen. This result needs to be recorded in a record book or sheet.

Your blood glucose levels change during the day depending on many factors including the presence of stress or illness, the type and amount of food you eat and your level of physical activity. By understanding the effect of food and activity on blood glucose levels, you can work with your health care professional to adjust your management plan.

How to choose the right blood glucose monitor?

Our commitment to all Diabetes SA members is to provide personalised service. We make the time to sit down with you and help you through the process of choosing your meter by demonstrating the meters available. We then show you how to use your chosen meter and set up your meter so that you can begin using it at home.

We are also here to help if anything goes wrong with your meter. We will also discuss the benefits of becoming a member of Diabetes SA, to ensure that you can access the benefits available to members such as 25% discount on retail products.
