Coordinated by Baker Heart and Diabetes Institute, the AusDiab study is the largest Australian longitudinal population-based study examining the natural history of diabetes, heart disease and kidney disease in Australians over 25 years of age.
The baseline study of 11,247 participants provided benchmark national data on the prevalence of diabetes, obesity, hypertension and kidney disease in Australia.
A new study, PREDICT, aims to develop ways of identifying those people with type 2 diabetes who are at risk of developing diabetes complications.
