Important announcement – Diabetes SA is set to fund diabetes research for all South Australians.

As part of our mission, Diabetes SA through the generous support of its members and the community of South Australia are very excited to announce the first round of research funding.

The Association is inviting applications from health professionals and researchers to support new or continuing research that is directed towards prevention, detection, management of diabetes and the identification, delivery and performance of services for people with diabetes.

Funding will be up to $100,000 per year for two years with funding available from April 2018.

Applications opened 3 November 2017 and close 22 December 2017.

The key Diabetes SA priority research areas will be:

  • the development of intervention or prevention strategies that reduce the risk of diabetes in the South Australian community or a defined group
  • the development of tests, tools and/or methodologies for the early detection/diagnosis or assessing risk in an individual of diabetes
  • the investigation of new and innovative ways of treatment and management of diabetes
  • the examination of the psychosocial consequences of diabetes at the individual or community level
  • the examination of the organisation, effectiveness and/or optimisation of delivery of multi-disciplinary diabetes services to the community.

The key outcome of this research will be to provide better outcomes for people at risk or living with diabetes.

For more information visit or find Diabetes SA on Facebook, Twitter and Google+.

Diabetes SA is a not for profit, member based Association that is largely self-funded, our mission is to educate, advocate, support and fund research that provides better outcomes for people at risk or living with diabetes.

World Diabetes Day Seminar – Research and Innovations into Diabetes Management

On Tuesday 14 November 2017, Diabetes SA held their World Diabetes Day Seminar for people with type 1 diabetes at the Adelaide Convention Centre, this year the seminar focused on Research and Innovation in Diabetes Management.

Light refreshments were served from 6.00pm, where there was an opportunity for all attendees to visit trade displays and see the latest insulin pumps, smart meters, hypo treatment, continuous blood glucose monitors and more. On hand to answer any questions and showcase new technology and information were representatives from BD, AMSL, Nipro, Abbott, Roche and we also had a representative available to discuss the ENDIA Study.

Executive Manager Fiona Benton opened the seminar and to start the evening introduced Peter Crouch from the Diabetes SA board who discussed upcoming research grants, Fiona then introduced the first speaker, Associate Professor David O'Neal, who discussed the latest research into the 'Artificial Pancreas' system which monitors blood glucose levels round the clock and provides the body with the right amount of insulin at the right time — just like our pancreas would without diabetes.

After a short 25-minute break with light refreshments available and further time to mingle at the trade tables, Fiona Benton introduced our second speaker, Associate Professor Stephen Stranks, who discussed the latest drug therapies available for people living with type 1 diabetes and immunotherapy to preserve beta cell function in people newly diagnosed with type 1 diabetes.

The seminar concluded at 9.00pm with very positive feedback from the audience. Thank you to all that attended and organised the seminar, it was a great success.

Diabetes and pregnancy

More than morning sickness and food cravings

This information is equally important for women with type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes.

The experience of becoming a mother is different for all women

First time mums enter an unknown world of morning sickness and strange food cravings during pregnancy. Second and third time mums find that their new experiences are different from their last. It’s fair to say, that this is a time of mixed emotions. Having diabetes adds a whole new dimension to this.

If you have diabetes and are considering pregnancy, there are many considerations (beyond dealing with morning sickness) to help manage a healthy pregnancy. These considerations start before you even become pregnant. The first eight weeks of pregnancy is when the baby’s major organs develop. High blood glucose levels during this time may lead to abnormal development of the heart, spine or kidneys. This is often a time when pregnancy is not realised, therefore planning to make sure that blood glucose levels are as close to the target range before conception can help to reduce the risk of these complications.

The following provides a comprehensive checklist of topics that should be discussed with your diabetes team:


Using appropriate contraception will help to avoid pregnancy while you are taking the time to ensure your diabetes management and health is in check.

Target HbA1c

It is recommended that women planning a pregnancy maintain an HbA1c below 7% (53mmol/mol) for at least three months prior to becoming pregnant and during pregnancy. This is a general target (and often challenging to achieve), so discuss your individual target with your endocrinologist.

Regular blood glucose monitoring

Regular blood glucose monitoring will help you and your diabetes team recognise any adjustments that may be required to your diabetes management.

Review type 2 medications

Some diabetes medications are not known to be safe during pregnancy, therefore your doctor may advise you to transfer onto insulin before and during pregnancy. 

Review insulin doses (including insulin pump settings)

Insulin regimens and doses may need to be adjusted in order to achieve your target HbA1c before conception. These doses will continuously be monitored, as they will change during pregnancy, delivery and while breast-feeding.

Cholesterol and blood pressure medications

Discuss with your doctor about cholesterol lowering medications and review blood pressure medications as these may need to be ceased.

Blood pressure

Check and stabilise blood pressure.

 Screening for diabetes complications

Complications may worsen during pregnancy and become difficult to manage.

High dose (5 mg) folate supplementation

This is much higher than the usual 0.5 mg tablet available and should be taken one month before conception and for the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. Your doctor may suggest that you take half to one 5 mg tablet each day depending on other pregnancy supplements you may be taking.

150 microgram iodine supplementation

This is recommended during pregnancy and breastfeeding unless you have an overactive thyroid or Graves disease.

Learning or refreshing carbohydrate counting skills

This can help to match insulin doses to food intake to help manage blood glucose levels.

Optimal nutrition

A well balanced diet is essential for the growth and development of a growing baby. Important nutrients to consider during pregnancy include protein, iron, iodine, calcium, omega-3 fish oils and vitamin D. Check with your dietitian before becoming pregnant that you are meeting requirements and determine the need for additional supplementation.

Maintaining healthy weight

Carrying extra weight can affect fertility and affect how insulin works (insulin resistance). Seek the right support to manage your weight in a healthy way to optimise your health and chances of falling pregnant.

Regular movement

Regular movement is essential to help maintain general fitness, muscle mass, an optimal weight and reduce insulin resistance that occurs during all pregnancies. Always discuss new exercise regimens with your GP or specialist before getting started.

Quit smoking

Rubella (German measles) and chicken pox

Ask your doctor to check your immunity to rubella and chicken pox before you become pregnant – you may require vaccinations. High blood glucose levels during pregnancy can lead to macrosomia (large baby), leading to delivery complications and hypoglycaemia for the baby at birth. For this reason, it is important to continue to work closely with your diabetes team to manage blood glucose levels during pregnancy.

Support is available

Although there is a lot to think about, there is a lot of support available, and mothers living with diabetes will tell you that this hard work is totally worth the reward of a healthy bundle of joy.

CEO's message – Living November 2017

I am sure that in most households as it is in mine, women play a central role in the health and wellbeing of their families and influence the many choices and decisions that are made in the family unit. As I look around at the women in my life I see a recurring theme – if women play such an integral role in the health and wellbeing of their families then why do we put ourselves last?

As we move toward World Diabetes Day in November it is very fitting that this year’s theme has a focus on Women and Diabetes – our rights to a healthy future. With this theme in mind we have dedicated a whole edition to providing you with all the information women need to live a long and healthy life. From quick and easy recipes, to articles about mindful eating, staying healthy at any age, planning a pregnancy, menopause and heart disease.

To support the theme our feature article on Eliza’s story is an amazing example of a young woman living with type 1 diabetes who has not let her diabetes stop her from achieving her dreams. Her strength, determination and motivation to help others is an inspiration to not only women of her age but also the rest of us. What a wonderful role model she is.

Our cover photo features another great role model in our organisation Jan Coxon who recently celebrated 25 years of service to the Association. Jan has worked within our retail operation for all this time providing information and support to our members across the counter. I am sure that many of our members have had the opportunity of meeting Jan and experiencing the excellent service she provides. Congratulations Jan!

So as not to forget the men in our lives, Peter’s story on page 16 is a great read. His personal account of his journey with diabetes and the importance of education, highlights the value of building your diabetes knowledge and accessing programs that will provide you with the tools to effectively manage the condition. The article also highlighted the importance of having that person to support you, in this case his wife Gabi.

If there is one thing I would ask you to take from this edition is the need to value the women in our lives by giving them the time to put themselves first and for women to not feel guilty about putting yourself first.

Stay healthy and happy.

Angelique Pasalidis, CEO Diabetes SA

P.S.The Association would also like to acknowledge the passing of another women of influence – Fay Fuller who supported the Association through the provision of funding for Kids Camps.
