November is Diabetes Awareness Month in Canada

It is Diabetes Awareness Month in Canada and I wanted to share some facts from my blog on how diabetes and its complications can affect not only your vision, but the delicate structures inside your eye.

Facts from the Canadian Diabetes Association:

  • With an estimated 3.4 million Canadians living with diabetes, it touches most of us.
  • Untreated, type 2 diabetes can cause severe health problems and even be fatal.
  • Early detection for those who have the disease can decrease complications and improve an individual’s quality of life.
  • To find out your risk of developing diabetes visit Dontberisky to take a short survey.
