Diabetes Risk Assessment Tool

Welcome to the diabetes risk calculator. 

Type 2 diabetes is the fastest growing chronic condition in Australia. While there is no single cause of type 2 diabetes, there are well-established risk factors. Some risk factors can be controlled and others you are born with. Diabetes Australia has developed a Risk Calculator based on the Australian type 2 diabetes risk test (AUSDRISK). It is a quick and simple way to determine your risk or developing type 2 diabetes in the next five years. To find out your risk level complete the following questionnaire.

Your risk of developing type 2 diabetes within 5 years 

If you scored 6-11 points in the AUSDRISK you may be at increased risk of type 2 diabetes. Discuss your score and your individual risk with your doctor.

If you scored 12 points or more in the AUSDRISK you may have undiagnosed type 2 diabetes or be at high risk of developing the disease.

Call us on 9252 2225 to book an appointment with one of our GPs and ask about having a fasting blood glucose test.

*The overall score may overestimate the risk of diabetes in those aged less than 25 years. The Australian Type 2 Diabetes Risk Assessment Tool was developed by the Baker IDI Heart and Diabetes Institute on behalf of the Australian, State and Territory Governments as part of the COAG initiative to reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes.
