Diabetes Support

Whether you’ve just been diagnosed, or been living with it for a while, diabetes doesn’t have to control your life. Diabetes Australia is here for you now and into the future. We work with our community to prevent and reduce the impact of diabetes.

We provide a range of support services including:

  • individual consultations, with diabetes educators and accredited practising dietitians, for people living with diabetes and at risk of developing diabetes
  • regular free educational programs across the state, as well as online webinars
  • free telephone health coaching
  • Diabetes Tasmania is the agent for the National Diabetes Services Scheme (NDSS) in Tasmania.

You can also call the free NDSS Helpline on 1800 637 700 where you can:

  • talk to a health professional about managing your diabetes
  • find out how to access health services and support
  • discuss access to NDSS products and diabetes medications.
