Many people are not aware of early signs, symptoms or risks that are associated with diabetes; particularly type 2 diabetes. Undiagnosed type 2 diabetes affects around 30% of South Australians aged 25 years or older. A further 16% (approximately 180,000) are estimated to be at risk of developing the condition within the next 5 years.
At Diabetes SA, our goal is to increase awareness of the signs and symptoms of diabetes, resulting in early identification and management of the condition. How can we do this? By increasing the number of people in the community who complete a simple, 10 question test that can help to identify people with pre-diabetes, or those at high risk of developing diabetes. Take the test.
Diabetes SA members have access to professional support when you have important questions and don’t want to wait for an appointment. Our healthcare team of credentialled diabetes educators, accredited practicing dietitians, and registered nurses are all here to help, either face-to-face or over the phone.
