New research from Ireland has found more than 40% of people with diabetes in that country have some form of kidney disease.

This is slightly higher than in Australia, but we do know less than 30% of Australians with diabetes are getting regular kidney checks.

Find out more about this research and what you can do to look after your kidneys here on the Diabetes Australia website.

Anna Moresby has lived with diabetes for 80 years!

When she was four, her father promised her some toffee treats, if a cure for diabetes was ever found.

It's a promise she hopes will be fulfilled in her lifetime.

You can read Anna's story and more on Diabetes Australia's 100 Years of Insulin website: www.diabetesaustralia.com.au/100-years-of-insulin/

This year our appeal is all about donating to research, we do this both locally here in Tasmania and by donating yearly to the Diabetes Australia Research Program. Will you help us by donating for a cure? diabetestas.org.au/donate-today/
