Special care - Diabetes


The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare report released on 30 Jun 2011, titled 'Diabetes prevalence in Australia: detailed estimates for 2007-08', states that 4.1% of Australians have diabetes (Type 1 and 2). The actual prevalance could be higher, given that many people affected by diabetes are not aware of their condition.

Diabetes is the fastest-growing chronic disease. The proportion of Australians with diabetes rose from 1.5% to 4.1% over the 20 years to 2007–08.

The proportion of people affected by Type 2 diabetes in some Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities are among the highest in the world, around one third of the population.

Diabetes Australia is the national peak body for diabetes in Australia, representing people living with diabetes, their families and carers. Diabetes Australia is a federation of 12 consumer, health professional and research organisations.

Diabetes Australia administers the National Diabetes Services Scheme for the Australian Government. It provides practical assistance, information and subsidised products to thousands of Australians with diabetes.

This category lists professionals with a special interest in the treatment of diabetes, health services, support organisations, distributors of diabetic management consumables and diabetic food suppliers.
