Diabetes Queensland’s Live Your Life Community

Being a member of Diabetes Queensland means you belong to a strong and engaged community that connects you to others living with diabetes, their families, carers, supporters and health professionals. Together we provide a louder voice for the needs of people living with diabetes.

At Diabetes Queensland we have time to care for you and your diabetes and we should be the first place to turn to for support, help, advice and information about living with diabetes. We provide up-to-date information and support to over 33,000 Queenslanders living with diabetes.

We’re here to make sure you have access to everything you need to better understand and manage your diabetes.
