Do you know your risk for developing type 2 diabetes?

Have you experienced any of the above symptoms?  If so, you could be at greater risk for type 2 diabetes. You are not alone: one in three Canadians already has prediabetes or diabetes, and many don’t know it. Find out your risk - it’s easy: click diabetestest.ca and take a simple test as part of Diabetes Canada’s “What’s Your Risk?” diabetes awareness campaign. The good news: Take action now, and you could potentially prevent type 2 diabetes. When you’re ready to talk about your test results, visit your doctor, pharmacist, or another health-care professional. To learn more about diabetes, visit diabetes.ca.

The “What’s Your Risk?” campaign runs until November 30 in partnership with Sun Life Financial. For every test completed, Sun Life Financial will donate $3 to breakthrough diabetes research.
