Based on self-reported data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) 2017 18 National Health Survey , an estimated 1.2 million Australians (4.9% of the total population) had diabetes. Successful long term management of diabetes requires a complex interaction between medication administration, self-monitoring, diet, exercise and consultation with healthcare professionals1. However, barriers exist towards effective self management2, 3. The purpose of this study is to explore the experience of living with diabetes in women participating in the Australian Longitudinal Study on Women s Health (ALSWH) .
