Jodie's story: What I Wish I Knew


When Jodie was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, she was overwhelmed.


She didn't know anything about diabetes and didn't know the questions to ask to get more information. Nothing was working, then she found the right healthcare team to support her. 


Now Jodie has some advice. 


"Find a good GP. Keep asking questions. Understand how serious it is"


Every year tens of thousands of Australians are diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.


It can be overwhelming. There is so much to learn. Sometimes you don't feel any different. It can be hard to find the time. Many people don't know where to turn.


What I Wish I Knew is a new campaign featuring real stories from real people sharing what they wished they'd known when they were first diagnosed. 


Visit the What I wish I knew website to watch more stories and receive first-hand advice for anyone that has been recently diagnosed.
