At present, there is no data being captured nationally on the prevalence of Type 1 Diabetes. The most current report produced by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) is dated 2000-2015 and over this time, there were 38,900 new cases of T1D in Australia. This translates to around 7 new cases per day.
The number of people living with Type 1 in Australia was estimated to be 158,900 in 2015. Out of this, over 6,000 children are said to be living with T1D. It is reported that 2 out of 3 newly diagnosed cases were represented by children and young adults under 25 years.
At present, in Australia and across the globe, research is being conducted on the many aspects of Type 1 Diabetes.
