November is Diabetes Month

1 in 3 Canadians have Diabetes or Prediabetes. There are 2 Types of Diabetes; both types involve sugar being stored in the blood rather than being converted to energy. Type 1 Diabetes (5-10% of cases of diabetes) is when one’s immune system inhibits one’s body from producing insulin, which helps convert sugar into energy. Type 2 Diabetes (90% of cases) is when the body either doesn’t produce enough insulin or doesn’t properly use insulin. 70% of Type 2 Diabetes cases can be prevented or delayed by making healthy lifestyle choices, including healthy eating and regular exercise.
