Australians living in rural and remote areas have been shown to have higher rates of risk factors and mortality from diabetes than their metropolitan counterparts. In 2004-05, it was found that death rates due to diabetes were significantly higher in all regional areas.
This program explores the treatment and management of diabetes in rural and remote Australia. The context is explored through four case studies, developed by The Menzies School of Health Research. The case studies highlight a variety of special circumstances, including pregnancy, older age, and co-morbidity.
