Treatment

Treatment at the Mater Private Diabetes Centre focuses on providing personalised treatment plans in one setting, coordinated by one team.

Whether you are newly diagnosed or have been living with diabetes for many years, there are key times in life when you need additional support.

Our view is that the key to treating and managing diabetes is with patient participation, education and empowerment. For both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes, lifestyle modification is an important aspect of treatment. A healthy diet and regular exercise are two very important elements of lifestyle modification.

We offer a range of care programmes which have been designed to offer you the clinical care and support you need to stay in control of your condition at these times. Each is formed based on the needs of each individual and will be discussed and explained to you by your consultant and care team.
