The Australian Type 2 Diabetes Risk Assessment Tool was developed by the Baker IDI Heart and Diabetes Institute on behalf of the Australia State and Territory Governments as part of the COAG initiative to reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes. © 2010 Commonwealth of Australia.
The AUSDRISK screening tool provides an estimate of a person's type 2 diabetes risk. It is not a substitute for medical advice. You may still develop type 2 diabetes even if you have none of these risk factors or demonstrate a low risk score.
It should be noted that AUSDRISK predicts five year risk of diabetes, and the risk of developing diabetes over a longer period would be greater.
A person receiving a high risk result should see their doctor for a clinical test. A high risk result does not mean that an individual has diabetes.
