This year, National Diabetes Week will run from 11 – 17 July and this year the focus is on challenging diabetes-related stigma.

If you’re diabetic, you’ll know the impact diabetes has on your life and how it impacts other aspects of your health, including mental health. Having a good care plan and a caring GP can help you manage your diabetes, so this National Diabetes Week, ask your GP about what a good care plan looks like.

Know your risk

It is also important that you know your risk for developing type 2 diabetes. You can use this Diabetes risk assessment tool to check your risk. If you score over 12 then you should book an appointment with your GP immediately.

If you are diabetic it is important that you see your GP regularly for monitoring and there is no better time than National Diabetes week to make an appointment.

Make an appointment by booking online, or call us on (03) 9510 5500
