Insulin-treated diabetes in Australia 2000-2007 presents the latest available data from Australia's National Diabetes Register (NDR). This report shows that the incidence of Type 1 and other insulin-treated diabetes in Australia is increasing and people with insulin-treated diabetes have significantly higher death rates than other Australians. The information in this report can be used to understand the changing patterns of insulin-treated diabetes, who the disease affects and where people with insulin-treated diabetes reside.
