World Diabetes Day: Know your Risk, Know your Response

World Diabetes Day: Know your Risk, Know your Response

World Diabetes Day is recognized every November 14th- the birthday of Sir Frederick Banting, who co-discovered insulin in 1922. World Diabetes Day was created in response to the growing global concern surrounding the increasing health threats posed by diabetes. The World Diabetes Day campaign aims to promote the importance of addressing diabetes as a critical health issue that affects  an increasing number of individuals worldwide.

Access to Diabetes Care

This year, the theme of World Diabetes Day is “Access to Diabetes Care”. Through this theme, WDD advocates for the millions of individuals who do not have access to vital diabetes care that is required to manage their condition and avoid complications.

1 in 10 adults worldwide have diabetes. Over 90% have type 2 diabetes. Close to half are not yet diagnosed.

The Rising Prevalence and Cost of Diabetes

The cost of diabetes care and support continues to rise alongside the increasing prevalence of the disease. Diabetes Canada highlights the growing financial strain that diabetes treatment can place on individuals who seek care.

541 million adults are at increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

World Diabetes Day highlights the importance of knowing your risk of type 2 diabetes. While type 1 diabetes may be genetic, type 2 diabetes can be preventable and manageable. Mitigation and treatment of diabetes should not be limited to the hospital, it can be practiced in your home through your diet and lifestyle.

Staying active, managing body weight, and following a nutritious and healthy diet can delay the onset or aid in the prevention of type 2 diabetes.
