Welcome to Diabetes WA

Here for your health journey


A condition where your blood glucose levels are higher than normal, but not high enough for you to be diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.

Type 1 Diabetes

Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune condition in which the immune system destroys healthy cells in the pancreas and stops it from producing insulin.

Type 2 Diabetes

Type 2 diabetes is a progressive condition where the body does still produce some insulin, but it is either ineffective or there is not enough of it.

Gestational Diabetes

Gestational diabetes mellitus is a form of diabetes that occurs during pregnancy and usually goes away after the baby is born.

Here for your health journey!

No matter what stage you are at on your health journey, Diabetes WA is here for you. We work in the community to educate, inform and support people at risk of, living with and affected by diabetes.
