Diabetes on the rise
NANAIMO - OBESITY RATES ARE SKYROCKETING ACROSS CANADA -- AND SO ARE THE HEALTH PROBLEMS THAT GO ALONG WITH THEM.
NINE MILLION CANADIANS ARE LIVING WITH DIABETES -- AND MORE ARE BEING DIAGNOSED EVERY DAY.
HERE IN BRITISH COLUMBIA -- RATES SEEM TO BE PARTICULARLY HIGH.
ON THE RUN, ALWAYS GETTING FROM ONE PLACE TO THE NEXT AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. NOT GOOD FOR OUR HEALTH, AS IT FORCES US TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE RESTAURANTS ON OUR ROUTE. FOODS THAT CAN BECOME ADDICTIVE.
THE CANADIAN DIABETES ASSOCIATION'S RESEARCH SHOWS THAT BRITISH COLUMBIA IS CURRENTLY SPENDING ROUGHLY $1.3 BILLION DOLLARS PER YEAR ON DIABETES. THAT FIGURE COULD RISE TO $1.9 BILLION BY 2020.
YOU COULD BE AT RISK AT BECOMING DIABETIC IF YOU ARE OVER WEIGHT, OVER THE AGE OF 40 AND DON'T LIVE AN ACTIVE LIFE.
SOMETIMES IN LIFE WE NEED TO TAKE A STEP BACK. SLOW DOWN OUR DAY TO DAY ACTIVITIES AS DIABETES CAN BE BROUGHT ON BY STRESS.
YOU CAN AVOID BEING DIAGNOSED WITH DIABETES BY LISTENING TO EDNA AND BEGIN LIVING AN ACTIVE LIFESTYLE. IF DIABETIC, IT'S NOT TO LATE, AS YOU ARE ENCOURAGED TO GO FOR A LIGHT JOG OR A BRISK WALK.
