Diabetes helpline


Diabetes South Africa and the South African NCDs Alliance offer you free support thru our helpline. 

How it works: 

WhatsApp 081 578 6636 or send an email to [email protected]

You message us, and we call back or reply between 08:00 and 17:00. Leave a voice or WhatsApp message in English or Afrikaans. Tell us your name, cell number or email and a few words about your diabetes challenge and we will get back to you.

Please do not use the diabetes helpline in the case of emergencies or if you experience a sudden worsening of your health. Rather call an ambulance, go straight to your nearest hospital or follow government instructions.
