Diabetes Week 2018: Did You Know?
Did you know that up to 500,000 Australians may already have type 2 Diabetes and not know it?
During Diabetes Week, Diabetes Australia‘s ‘It’s About Time’ campaign aims to raise awareness about the importance of early detection and early treatment for all types of diabetes.
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. It’s About Time we detected all types of diabetes earlier and save lives!
