Stand Up To Diabetes - Public Information -

Ontario, it's time to stand up to diabetes, to learn about risk factors in getting it, possibly preventing it, and managing it if you already have it. You can do it.

Diabetes is on the rise. In 2007/08, approximately 969,000 Ontarians had diabetes. By 2010, that number may reach 1.2 million. (Lipscombe 2007).

Why the need for action? Diabetes is a serious disease that needs managing. If neglected, it can lead to serious, long-term health complications, including heart and kidney disease, stroke, blindness and amputation, and accounts for a significant number of emergency rooms visits each year.

Type 1 diabetes cannot be prevented. Type 2 diabetes can be prevented through healthy eating, weight management and exercise. By making the right lifestyle choices, both types of diabetes can be managed; letting you live a long and healthy life.
