Diabetic Risk Assessment for people aged 40 to 49
This health check is aimed at people aged between 40 and 49 years of age. All we ask that you do is obtain a Risk Assessment Form from reception or access it here.
The Australian Type 2 diabetes assessment tool (AUSDRISK) is a short list of questions to help both health professionals and patients assess the risk of developing type 2 diabetes over the next 5 years.
People with a high result (>12), are eligible to attend a Diabetes Risk Evaluation with their Doctor. If you meet the criteria of being at immediate or high risk, this is followed up with blood tests and a discussion about lifestyle changes.
It is possible you may be eligible for a referral to a subsidised Lifestyle Modification Program.
