Study looking for Aboriginal diabetes answers

  • 1 June

    The Aboriginal Diabetes Study is based at the South Australia (SA) Health and Medical Research Institute in Adelaide and is working in partnership with the Ceduna Koonibba Aboriginal Health Service Aboriginal Corporation, with support from the Ceduna Hospital. The Study team is working with communities to help explain the diabetes problem in the Aboriginal population.


    The Aboriginal Diabetes Study needs 4,000 people in SA with or without diabetes to help them better understand diabetes in Aboriginal communities.

    All participants will receive a full health assessment performed by the Aboriginal clinical research team.  The assessment includes heart, eye and foot check, blood pressure and blood test. Participants are also asked questions about their medical history and lifestyle. Information is treated confidentially, and any immediate health issues are managed by the clinical team.
