Diabetes Information

The World Health Organization has estimated that by the year 2010, more than 230 million people will be diagnosed with diabetes worldwide. Of that, 3 million will be in Canada, with approximately 59,000 in Saskatchewan alone. The scarier statistic is that an estimated 1/3 more of the population is believed to have undiagnosed diabetes.

The purpose of this page is to provide you with credible sources of information, so that you are able to educate yourself on diabetes and its prevention.
