About the campaign

Every year tens of thousands of Australians are diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.

For many, it can be overwhelming with so much to learn and feeling unsure where to turn.

If I Had Known campaign gives a voice to real Australians impacted by type 2 diabetes to share their experiences about what they wished they’d known when they were first diagnosed and learning to live with the condition.

It aims to inspire action and to help other people living with type 2 diabetes, by highlighting the need to act early, to get the right support, to manage the condition, and to live a healthy life to reduce the risk of complications down the track.
