Diabetes Research

After watching this video, we hope that you will be able to:

  • Identify the different types of research models and the differences between them
  • Find the resources to learn more about the diabetes research projects happening in Canada and internationally; - Understand what to expect and what your rights are, if you participate in a research project
  • Make an informed decision if you are thinking about getting involved in a diabetes research project.

Menopause & Type 1 Diabetes 

In this video, we hear from Dr. Alice Cheng on the intersection between Type 1 diabetes, menopause, and sexual health. She discusses the impact of hormones on blood sugar levels, strategies to manage fluctuations in blood sugar levels, and options for managing the symptoms of perimenopause and menopause. Dr. Cheng also covers other health conditions to be aware of during and after menopause, the impact diabetes may have on sexual health, and treatment to address issues that may arise.
