TORONTO, Ont. – In recognition of Diabetes Awareness Month this November, the Canadian Diabetes Association (CDA) has partnered with The Globe and Mail to produce a special feature that is available on newsstands Nov. 5.

Within the feature, you will read news and information about diabetes in Canada, along with stories about people affected by type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes or prediabetes from all walks of life.

These stories and more are also available on The Globe and Mail’s website.

In addition, learn about the risk factors for type 2 diabetes and visit DiabetesTest.ca to find out if you are at risk. The CDA encourages all Canadians to take charge of their health by taking two minutes to complete the CANRISK type 2 diabetes online risk questionnaire. By knowing if you are at risk or getting an early diagnosis, you can act to stay healthy and potentially prevent diabetes-related complications, like heart attack, stroke, kidney failure and vision loss.
