National Diabetes Week runs from Sunday 14 July – Saturday 20 July 2019.  The 2019 theme “It’s About Time” aims to raise awareness of all types of diabetes and how it affects those that are living with it. Too many Australians are being diagnosed with diabetes too late. This is true for both type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes. The delay in diagnosis is putting many people at risk of major life-threatening health problems. Early diagnosis, treatment, ongoing support and management can reduce the risk of diabetes-related complications.

Help us raise awareness of the seriousness of diabetes and using the posters and social media tiles below.

Each year, 640 Australians end up very sick in hospital with extremely high blood glucose levels because the early signs and symptoms of type 1 diabetes are not recognised in time. Half of these are children and adolescents. Do you know the signs of type 1 diabetes. If you’re living with type 1 diabetes, what symptoms did you have during diagnosis?
