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 mellitus is a form of diabetes that occurs during pregnancy and usually goes away after the baby is born.
We always have a variety of information sessions that are being conducted on a regular basis for people living with diabetes or supporters of them. These regular sessions include DESMOND, Reconnecting With Diabetes, DAFNE and all our ‘Smart’ programs (MedSmart, MeterSmart, FootSmart, ShopSmart and CarbSmart).
DESMOND brings patient-centred care to life.
DESMOND is: Diabetes Education and Self-Management for Ongoing and Newly Diagnosed.
The program is an evidence based workshop designed to support people living with type 2 diabetes. The program recognises that there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach to diabetes management. It is intended to provide your patients with a welcoming and non-judgemental space. Here they can plan how they would like to manage their diabetes.
