The onset of Type 2 (non insulin dependent) diabetes and some instances of Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults (LADA) is becoming quite common amongst the adults. It is estimated that there are around one million people in Australia who have diabetes (type 1 and type 2). According to Diabetes Australia, over 700,000 people are currently registered on the National Diabetes Services Scheme (NDSS) with 6,000 new registrants joining each month (NDSS News - Conquest, 2006). The increase in numbers of the diabetic people will certainly have an impact on the healthcare for the aged. In order to prevent or at least minimize the long term health complications associated with diabetes, a commitment to proper management of the condition from the time of diagnosis is absolutely vital.

This paper has investigated some of the latest technologies available in monitoring and managing diabetes. There is no doubt that the advancement of information technology does and will play a key role in providing a more effective management strategy.
