Diabetes is a chronic, incurable disease that occurs when the body doesn’t produce any or enough insulin, leading to an excess of sugar in the blood. More than two million Canadians have diabetes. By the end of this decade, it is expected to rise to three million. The financial burden of diabetes and its complications on people with the disease and on the Canadian healthcare system is enormous. The personal costs of diabetes may include a reduced quality of life and the increased likelihood of complications such as heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, blindness, and amputation. To date there is no proven way to prevent type 1 diabetes; however, the onset of type 2 diabetes may be prevented or delayed, through increased physical activity and diet. Taking these steps now can lead to a healthier future.
