Diabetes Australia and state and territory diabetes organisations will continue to deliver NDSS support and education services for people living with all types of diabetes.

National Diabetes Week 2016

National Diabetes Week (10 – 16 July) aims to raise the awareness of diabetes in the community. Diabetes is Australia's fastest growing chronic condition and there are more than 100,000 South Australians diagnosed with diabetes (as at 31 March 2016).

This year, Diabetes SA will be focusing on increasing the awareness and greater understanding of diabetes while highlighting the many different aspects of diabetes management to support people and families affected by diabetes:

A new resource has been launched to raise awareness of cardiovascular disease and its link to diabetes 

There is no single cause for cardiovascular disease (CVD), but there are many risk factors including living with diabetes. If you have one risk factor, you're likely to have others. Fortunately a majority of CVD risk factors can be managed, treated or modified. However some cannot be changed.

Clothing Collection Update


Diabetes SA has now commenced a program which engages workplaces to encourage staff to donate over a period of one month or ongoing. In this initial phase big business has responded well to our request and seen this as an opportunity to combine this activity with internal wellness programs. This program provides convenience for staff to donate and for businesses to work with the organisation without the need for monetary donations. Already News Corporation and Ray White West Torrens have participated and future involvement with AGL, West End Brewery, Bickfords, Real Estate Institute of South Australia and other large well known businesses is being implemented.

Your continued support

Now that winter has arrived, it is always a good time to do a clean-out before it becomes too cold or the couch with the heater on seems a better place to stay. Also at this time we do not receive as many donations which we always need.
