Today, more than 9 million Canadians live with diabetes or pre-diabetes and 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 such as an aging population, obesity and a sedentary lifestyle.
The personal costs of diabetes may include a reduced quality of life and the increased likelihood of complications and the financial burden of diabetes and its complications is astronomic. People with diabetes incur medical costs that are two to three times higher than those without diabetes. By 2020, it’s estimated that diabetes will cost the Canadian healthcare system $16.9 billion a year.
