At Diabetes SA, our healthcare team is here to support you – whether you’re at risk of diabetes, living with diabetes, or supporting someone with diabetes.
It can be a challenge to balance everything that comes with managing a condition like diabetes.
We’re here to support you along your journey and encourage you to become engaged in your health.
Our health services team includes Credentialed Diabetes Educators, Accredited Practising Dietitians and Registered Nurses – all of whom are deeply passionate about diabetes.
And for many of us, supporting people with diabetes is personal as well as professional. A number of our team members have diabetes themselves or care for a close family member with diabetes.
Being diagnosed with diabetes can be overwhelming.
We’re here to support you every step of the way. To help you to make effective and personalised decisions about your health and your life.
We understand the journey – and know what makes a positive difference.
We aim to provide you with options while encouraging you to focus on your own goals and overall wellbeing.
