Welcome to the first edition of Healthe-News for 2018, covering the latest news in diabetes and health. There will be ten education sessions conducted in February, including our annual Food and Health Seminar, so don't miss out and book soon to avoid disappointment.

Diabetes is about self-management and a long term commitment to good health. We are here to support you and encourage you to become engaged in your health.

Diabetes SA's Annual Food and Health Seminar — The Whole Picture

whole-pictureThis year’s annual seminar will be looking at ‘the whole picture’ of what we put into our bodies and what we can get out of our bodies.

We will feature an expert in the field of dietary sweeteners, provide you with an opportunity to learn about exercise and movement and consider the overall evidence for a range of dietary patterns in managing diabetes.

Diabetes SA would like to invite you to join us for an informative morning.

Our Guest Presenters will be:

Associate Professor Richard Young – a Senior Research Fellow within the Discipline of Medicine, University of Adelaide, based at the South Australian Health & Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI).

His research explores the effect of sweeteners on the gastrointestinal system and glucose absorption, assessing the overall impact on diabetes management. Associate Professor Richard Young will attempt to shed some light on the often asked question of ‘sweetener vs sugar’?

Thomas Pretlove – an Accredited Exercise Physiologist working at Adelaide Exercise Physiology for nearly 10 years, with prior experience at Hampstead Rehabilitation Centre. Thomas specialises in areas of diabetes management and prevention, musculoskeletal assessment and ongoing rehabilitation.

Thomas will discuss the benefits of exercise for people with diabetes and appropriate exercises to suit a range of mobility levels. How to motivate people to exercise, practical tips for exercising at home and referral pathways for people with chronic conditions.

Anissia Fairlie – Accredited Practising Dietitian working at Diabetes SA, with previous experience across private practice and aged care, working with a range of chronic conditions.

Anissia will be discussing the evidence for a range of dietary patterns that have been used in research to assist the management of diabetes. She will explore their commonalities and determine which dietary patterns are associated with the best health outcomes.

Back to school – Tips for a seamless start


For children with diabetes and their parents, getting ready for a new school year involves a lot more than the typical back-to-school preparation of backpacks, books and calculators.

The start of school is an emotional time for everyone, and many parents are understandably concerned when their child starts or returns to school after being diagnosed with diabetes.

A team effort as children with diabetes head back to school

Back to school preparations involve planning, and most families will have an appointment scheduled with their hospital diabetes care team (principally the diabetes educator) prior to the commencement of the new school year to create and confirm a school diabetes care plan.
