The National Diabetes Week campaign raises awareness of the seriousness of diabetes and the growing number of people who have it.
Despite diabetes increasing at a faster rate than other chronic diseases such as heart disease and cancer, research conducted by Diabetes Australia shows people find the increase rate hard to believe.
Daughterly Care provides care for many clients with diabetes, particularly within the Elderly community.
