In this fast-paced era of globalisation, while increasing availability of consumer goods has made our lives easier, a hectic and unhealthy lifestyle has also given rise to many serious diseases. Prominent among these is ‘Diabetes’.

As per the statistics of Diabetes Canada, 11 million Canadians are living with diabetes or prediabetes, every 3 minutes, another Canadian is diagnosed with diabetes while 1.5 million people are living with the disease and they don’t even know it.

The figures are alarming and they demand our immediate attention. To avoid and get rid of this disease which is the root cause of other serious diseases, you need to be aware of certain factors that can put you at higher risk. These include family history of diabetes, overweight, highrisk ethnic group lineage, gestational diabetes, high cholesterol/triglyceride levels and high blood pressure. In case you fall under any of the categories mentioned above, detect/ rule out the ailment by undergoing a simple blood test. Routine diabetes screening normally starts around age 45. If any of the above factors doesn’t relate to you, look for other signs/ symptoms such as unusual thirst, frequent urination, extreme fatigue, blurred vision, recurring infections, unexplained weight changes, slow healing of cuts and bruises, and tingling or numbness in the hand following which, you should seek medical advice of a physician without any delay. The disease can affect the patient in two forms: Type 1 -a total lack of insulin or Type 2 – body’s inability to use insulin effectively. As already stated, diabetes can in fact lead to other serious diseases. Thus, it’s vital to control it by undertaking some simple measures.
