Diabetes is the world’s fastest-growing chronic disease. It is the sixth-leading cause of death in Australia.
Diabetes is the leading cause of blindness, kidney failure and dialysis, limb amputations as well as increasing the risk of heart attack and stroke by 25%. Diabetes affects both physical and mental with more than 30% of all people with diabetes experiencing depression and anxiety.
Early diagnosis, optimal treatment and effective ongoing support and management reduce the risk of diabetes-related complications. CFIH provides an early intervention of education and primary care service for diabetes management to reduce the risk of such complications.

The Dietitians at CFIH are different; They understand improving your health and diabetes management is not about being told what to eat, rather working with you to listen to your needs and lifestyle barriers. They are passionate about helping you understand how to manage your Diabetes and guide you along the path to improve your health.
