Diabetes, a chronic condition in which an individual is unable to properly process sugar, affects people around the world in a large scale. As of 2015, it is estimated that 9.3% of the Canadian population has been diagnosed with diabetes (3.4 million people), a number that is projected to grow to 12.5% (5 million people) by 2025. Of these people, anywhere from 5-10% have type-1 diabetes (typically juvenile-onset and independent of lifestyle factors), whereas 90% have type-2 diabetes (adult-onset, typically brought on by lifestyle factors like diet and physical activity).
In addition to having high blood sugar levels, diabetics are often vulnerable to other health problems, including foot ulcers, vision problems, and cardiovascular disease.
While there is no known cure for diabetes, it can be managed with changes to one’s lifestyle.
