Building Blocks – Diabetes education video series
Diabetes Victoria’s Building Blocks is a series of brief, educational videos providing tips on managing diabetes. Diabetes Victoria has developed a broad range of topic-specific videos to support people living with diabetes, and qualified diabetes educators have reviewed all content and information provided in the videos.
The videos are designed to provide guidance on various topic areas; however, this does not replace advice from your treating specialist or doctor. If you are in doubt about any aspects of your diabetes management or care, please seek professional medical advice.
The Building Blocks video series was produced by Diabetes Victoria with the financial assistance of the Victorian State Government.
This video explores what a hypo is, who is at risk of hypos and how to treat them. This video provides information on warning signs and how to treat hypos quickly.

Postage rate for pictorial guide

When placing your orders, please bear in mind that we have been impacted by inflation and increasing postage costs. We ask for your consideration to not take advantage of the free postage by splitting your orders, so that we can continue to offer free postage for the vulnerable in our community.
