The National Gestational Diabetes Register was established within the National Diabetes Services Scheme (NDSS) to help women who have had gestational diabetes to manage their health into the future. Women who have had gestational diabetes have a higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes later in life.
If you register on the National Gestational Diabetes Register, you and your doctor will be sent regular reminders to have diabetes checks. You will also receive information for you and your family to help you continue a healthy lifestyle.
Registration with the National Gestational Diabetes Register is free. Women who have been diagnosed with gestational diabetes, reside in Australia and hold, or are eligible to hold, an Australian Medicare Card are entitled to register.
To qualify for the benefits of the National Gestational Diabetes Register you must first complete the Registration Form, and have it signed by a doctor or Credentialled Diabetes Educator (CDE).
To register with the National Gestational Diabetes Register please fill out this form and return to firstname.lastname@example.org or post to

Update contact details
If you wish, you may ‘opt out’ of further communication from the National Gestational Diabetes Register by filling in the information in the form. Even if you opt out you may still be sent important information from time to time about the management of your diabetes and material that informs you about the operation of the NDSS. There are no charges for these services and all personal details are kept confidential at all times.
If you have had gestational diabetes in the past, you may have been registered with the NDSS for a 12 month period which has now expired. If you would like to join the National Gestational Diabetes Register then please email email@example.com for further information.
