Managing diabetes

Older people

With increasing age, the number of people with diabetes also increases. Approximately 50% of all Australians with diabetes are aged 65 years or older. Diabetes care is generally the same no matter how old you are. However, there are some specific changes that happen with age and these might affect your diabetes.

 

The NDSS website provides resources specifically to assist in the management of type 2 diabetes in older people.
