The National Diabetes Register (NDR) is a database that collects information about people who use insulin as part of their treatment for diabetes.

It includes persons who began using insulin for management of diabetes since 1 January 1999, and who have consented to be included in the NDR. These include persons using insulin to manage Type 1, gestational and Type 2 diabetes. 


The objectives of the NDR are to:

  • Collect information about new cases of insulin-treated diabetes mellitus (ITDM);
  • Monitor and report on the incidence of ITDM and Type 1 diabetes;
  • Provide information to health service providers and planners at Commonwealth, State and local levels; and
  • Assist in national diabetes monitoring.
