Diabetes NZ are putting the spotlight on Diabetes

Diabetes is one of New Zealand’s most serious health issues, over 225,000 Kiwis have diabetes and every day 50 more people are diagnosed.

There’s much that needs to be done, but the most important place to start is to raise awareness so Diabetes NZ has launched a long term diabetes awareness programme.

The first stage of the programme runs through October and aims simply to make people aware of diabetes and get them thinking about it.

Diabetes New Zealand have produced a new pamphlet - Will you be killed by your sofa? - and website -  http://www.thedangerisreal.co.nz/. Both of these resources offer information about what Diabetes is and list ways in which New Zealanders can help prevent Type 2 Diabetes.

For further questions about this compaign you can contact Diabetes NZ on 04 499 7145 or email admin@diabetes.org.nz.
