The Canadian Diabetes Association and Diabetes Québec have joined forces to produce a detailed picture of the state of diabetes in Canada. Their report, Diabetes: Canada at the Tipping Point – Charting a New Path, is nothing short of alarming: diabetes continues to rise steadily throughout the country. The full report presents the status of the situation in terms of the numbers of people with diabetes and a projection of these numbers out to 2020.
If we don’t contain this virtual epidemic, Canada’s health care system will suffer, as direct and indirect health costs explode. In the report, we have put together a picture of the governments' involvement in the fight against diabetes and suggested a variety of actions that we can take to prevent the disease and its subsequent complications.
