We can help you actively manage your diabetes to make sure you continue to enjoy a full and active lifestyle.
Diabetes affects nearly one million Australians and can have both short and long-term impacts on your health. If you have diabetes, there are things you need to be doing to manage it.
Our nurses can help you control your diabetes. Our diabetes clinics offer support and education and our nursing team can assist with ongoing support with medication management, such as insulin injectsion if you are unable to manage this independently (and are eligible).
In consultation with your GP, our diabetes educators can assist to develop your own management plan, which could involve:
- making changes to your lifestyle
- monitoring your blood glucose levels
- taking care of your feet
- taking tablets or injections if you need.
At our diabetes clinics you can access care provided by a credentialled diabetes educator – either individually or as part of a small group. The service is available to anyone living with diabetes (Type 1, Type 2 or Gestational) and we focus on education, advice and self-management support.
If you are in the Peel, south west and mid west regions and you can’t attend a clinic, you can also access clinic services via phone or video conference.
|Peel region||72 Lakes Road, Mandurah|
