Diabetes is a condition which occurs when the body can't maintain healthy levels of glucose ( a type of sugar) in the blood. Unhealthy levels of glucose in the blood can lead to health complications.

Whilst there is currently no cure for diabetes, you can continue to live an enjoyable life by learning to effectively managing diabetes. 

Diabetes is a serious condition that benefits from you having a trusted health care team and careful monitoring. One of the main goals of treatment is to keep blood sugar levels within a target range. At home blood glucose monitoring can help with understanding how diet, activity, lifestyle and medications affect your sugar levels. 


Many people living with diabetes require insulin or oral medicine to effectively mange their blood glucose. Tablets or injections are intended to be used in addition to healthy eating and regular activity. Pharmacists can help you understand how to best use your medicines and you may be eligible for a funded review of your medicines with a pharmacist; a Diabetes MedsCheck.

To ensure that you achieve the best possible health outcomes, it is important to take your medicine regularly. Our prescription reminder service may be of assistance to you. 

Long term treatment of some diabetes medications can reduce the absorption of some nutrients. Supplementation of vitamin B12 may be beneficial for some patients. 

Blood glucose can drop too low causing hypoglycaemia. Hypoglycaemia can make it difficult to concentrate and function. It is important to treat hypoglycaemia quickly with fast-acting carbohydrates, suchs as jelly beans, soft drink, fruit juice, sugar, honey or glucose tablets. If not treated quickly, the blood glucose level can continue to drop. Severe hypoglycaemia is an emergency. 


Smoking makes diabetes harder to control. If you are living with diabetes and you smoke, you are more likely to have serious complications from diabetes. Stopping smoking will allow better control of your blood glucose. 

Maintaining a healthy weight is an important aspect of diabetes management. Small weight loss can make a big difference to diabetes management and reduce the risk of complications developing. 

Diabetes can lead to complications that affect your kidneys, eyes, feet and heart. It's important to identify any health concerns early and discuss with your health care team to reduce your risks.

People with diabetes are likely to develop some changes to their eyes. To look after you eyes and help prevent vision loss, you should have your eyes checked regularly.

Your feet are at risk because diabetes can cause damage to the nerves in your feet, reduce blood circulation and increase the risk of infection. Daily foot care is recommended including visual observation and moisturising. If injuries are found, they should be cleaned and dried. Saline is recommended for wound cleansing. An antiseptic should be applied to the injury along with a sterile dressing
