New Zealand Diabetes Statistics

Prevalence of diabetes by age group, 2007 and 2014
From Living Well with Diabetes: A plan for people at high risk of or living with diabetes 2015–2020

 

In October 2015 the Ministry of Health published Living Well with Diabetes: A plan for people at high risk of or living with diabetes 2015-2020.

“More than 257,000 New Zealanders now live with diabetes.

Although the emphasis is on type 2 diabetes, this plan also addresses the important needs of children and adults with type 1 diabetes to ensure they have the support of experienced, multidisciplinary teams and receive intensive support at different stages of their lives when required.”
