I was reading through the paper last night and I found an article/advertisement for healthy living about diabetes. I try not to dwell on the negatives about my 3 year old's diagnoses of type 1 diabetes.
Some times I find things that remind me what we really are up against in this fight for a cure.
IT'S WORSE THAN YOU THINK
More people die per year from diabetes than breast cancer. In fact diabetes is a leading cause of death by disease in Canada. That's because diabetes puts you at a higher risk for heart disease, stroke, kidney failure and other serous health complications. The rest of the article is about type 2 diabetes which is 90% of all diabetes cases and it is preventable much different from type 1 diabetes.
