TORONTO, Ont. (Nov. 2, 2015) – In recognition of Diabetes Awareness Month this November, Diabetes Canada has partnered with The Globe and Mail to produce a special feature that is available on newsstands and online today, “Diabetes: Taking it on Together.” The theme of this year’s feature is the prevention of type 2 diabetes and diabetes-related complications.
Read inspirational stories about people living with or affected by type 1 or type 2 diabetes, or prediabetes, from all walks of life—from a bank manager to a family with two boys who have been diagnosed, to Hockey Hall of Famer Darryl Sittler. Celebrate the 40th anniversary of the CDA’s research program and find out more about research that has investigated the links between diabetes in woman, breast cancer and their family’s health.
Learn about the risk factors for type 2 diabetes to find out if you are at risk. Diabetes Canada encourages all Canadians to take charge of their health by taking two minutes to complete the CANRISK type 2 diabetes online risk test. 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, vision loss and lower-limb amputation.
