If you are or know someone who is recently diagnosed as having Diabetes then please read this great piece by my new Canadian best friend ;0)
It totally sums up what each and every DBag has gone through at one time or another.
You Go Girl!!!
I’ve been trying to write something for days now. I have lots on my mind, so there’s no shortage of ideas, but trying to articulate them is another story all together.
For those of you with diabetes, regardless of type, I am not about to say anything new or revolutionary. For those of you who don’t, some of these statistics may shock you. If they don’t, they should.
An estimated 285 million people worldwide are affected by diabetes. With a further 7 million people developing diabetes each year, this number is expected to hit 438 million by 2030.
Today, more than 9 million Canadians live with diabetes or prediabetes.
Approximately 10% of people with diabetes have type 1 diabetes. The number of people with type 2 diabetes is increasing dramatically due to a number of factors:
- The population is aging.
- Obesity rates are rising.
- Canadian lifestyles are increasingly sedentary.
