    40 to 49 year Health Check

    This health check is aimed at people aged between 40 and 49 years of age with a high risk of developing “Type 2 Diabetes”. All we ask you to do is obtain a Risk Assessment Form from your GP practice or on-line at www.diabetesaustralia.com.au

    The Australian type 2 diabetes risk assessment tool (AUSDRISK) is a short list of questions to help both health professionals and consumers to assess the risk of developing type 2 diabetes over the next five years.

    People with a high score result, > 12, are eligible to attend a Diabetes Risk Evaluation with their GP. If you meet the criteria of being at immediate or high risk, this is followed up with blood tests and a discussion about life style changes.

    It is possible you may be eligible for a referral to Subsidised Life Style Modification Program.
