Diabetes Week

About the campaign

Each year during National Diabetes Week, Diabetes Queensland as part of Diabetes Australia aims to increase the awareness of type 1 and type 2 diabetes. This year we are encouraging people to recognise the symptoms and assess their risk of type 2 diabetes through our online risk assessment tool.

 

WHY SUPPORT NATIONAL DIABETES WEEK?

Nationally, 280 Australians are diagnosed with type 2 diabetes every day with just over 1 million Australians already living with type 2 diabetes.  Diabetes costs the Australian hospital system $14 billion annually with type 2 diabetes set to become the leading cause of disease burden by 2023 (AIHW, 2010).
