November 14: World Diabetes Day

Diabetes is a disease that affects 1.2 million people in Ontario. By 2020, it is predicted that this number will increase to 1.9 million people.

Every year, on World Diabetes Day, prevention strategies are promoted to try to stop this epidemic.

If not properly managed or treated, diabetes can cause a number of serious health problems. These include heart disease and stroke, kidney disease, eye disease, erectile dysfunction (impotence), and nerve damage.

Successfully managing your diabetes can help prevent or even delay complications. The CSCE Diabetes Education Program is a good means of achieving this goal. Do not hesitate to make an appointment with our health care professionals to learn more about how to improve the quality of your life.
