The Aboriginal Diabetes Study

Diabetes is a BIG problem in our communities.

It affects our young people through to our elderly people. Some Aboriginal people think diabetes is normal, but it doesn’t need to be.

By getting a better understanding of the things that raise the chances of getting Type 2 diabetes and the problems it causes, it will help us find better ways of stopping the problem. To find out more click on the link Aboriginal Diabetes Study

The ABORIGINAL Diabetes Study may help health workers and doctors understand how to help Aboriginal people and how to look after them better. For Aboriginal people in South Australia the benefits may include fewer eye, feet, kidney and heart problems from diabetes, or may delay these problems for longer.

If you are Aboriginal and in South Australia we need YOUR help and Together we can beat diabetes!
