Diabetes Action Month – it’s been a big one!

Diabetes Action Month NZ

November was our month – it was our turn to tell the world about diabetes, raise awareness about the difference between type 1 and type 2 and encourage people to take action if they’re at risk.

Why action month?

The Ministry of Health has declared that diabetes is “the largest and fastest growing health issue we face in New Zealand”.  With 100,000 Kiwis walking around undiagnosed and the disease rising by an average of 7% every year, we need to take action.

Here are the stats:

  • Every day 12 people in Auckland are diagnosed with diabetes
  • One in four Aucklanders are pre-diabetic
  • Diabetes three times more prevalent in Maori & Pacific populations
  • Nearly a quarter of a million Kiwis live with diabetes, 100,000 in Auckland

 

Diabetes Awareness Auckland

Action month is over, how can I continue taking action?

We love your passion – here’s what you can do:

  1.  Encourage your friends and family to take the risk assessment quiz to find out if they’re likely to be at risk of type 2
  2. Get connected – find us on Facebook and share our posts with your friends.
  3. Educate your community –   if you would like our mobile awareness service or a health promoter to visit your community email susanm@diabetesauckland.org.nz.
  4. Raise funds! Last year we screened 1,570 people for diabetes and helped another 413 people to reduce their risk through our healthy choices program. We couldn’t do it without your support! 

Get your friends and family together, run a marathon or host a morning tea at your workplace, whatever you choose to do – it will make a big difference! For fundraising support email caitlyno@diabetesauckland.org.nz
