Commonwealth Government of Australia

In Australia there are around 120,000 Type 1 Diabetics, when people with this life threatening disease are ill it is vital that they test their KETONE level to ensure they dont go into Diabetic Keto Acidosis, should this occur it can lead to health complications and even death.

The National Diabetic Services Scheme at this stage does not subsidise Ketone Strips for use in Blood Glucose Monitoring Machines which give an accurate reading of KETONE levels.

We The Undersigned , Call upon the Commonwealth of Australia to add KETONE testing Strips for Glucose Monitoring Machines to be Added to the NDSS so that those with Type 1 Diabetes can monitor KETONES when ill and seek medical aide when appropiate, this would have a flow on effect in ensuring the correct treatment can be made available before the situation becomes LIFE THREATENING.
