In New South Wales in 2016, 8.9% of people aged 16+ were told they had diabetes or high blood glucose levels, up from 6.5% in 2002 . In the Hunter New England and Central Coast Primary Health Network (HNECCPHN) region the proportion of the population with type 2 diabetes is 5.5%, with the highest proportions of people with type 2 diabetes in the LGAs of Gwydir (6.5%), Liverpool Plains (6%), and Mid-Coast (5.9%) .
