Diabetes remains the fastest growing chronic health condition in Australia and around 113,000 or 6.4% of South Australians have diabetes.

Alarmingly, these are the statistics:

  • One in six adults are at high risk of developing diabetes.
  • Around 16% of the SA population over 25 have prediabetes
  • Our recent detection campaign found that over 73% of participants were at risk of type 2 diabetes.

Early detection is the key to ensuring we have a community that understands their risk of developing type 2 diabetes and can stop the progression. The alarming rise in people at risk means it is even more important for Diabetes SA to deliver community detection activities. These events will increase awareness of signs and symptoms and the positive impact of early detection, resulting in improved health outcomes across the community.

We must act now to change our state’s concerning statistics for all the individuals and groups in our community, to engage and support them regardless of whether they are living in metropolitan or regional areas of South Australia.

Diabetes SA recently launched our inaugural Face the Facts campaign, aimed at early detection of type 2 diabetes. We went to people in regional and metropolitan South Australia and the results of this work showed extraordinary outcomes. With the past support of our members and donors, people’s lives were changed.

As we draw near to Christmas, let’s all celebrate the resilience our fellow community has shown in pandemic adversity because it assures us that we can turn around our state’s diabetes statistics as a community working together.

You can drive us to change the pathway for so many other people now and in generations to come. And you can change it with just one little decision…

Please donate today to ensure we can keep delivering early detection programs in South Australia.
