Diabetes is a chronic disease, and is a major public health issue especially as our population ages. More than 1.5 million Canadians have diabetes and another 750,000 have the disease but are unaware of it. Non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus, or type 2 diabetes, occurs usually after the age of 40 and is the most common form of the disease. Diabetes is a condition that progresses with age and can lead to cardiovascular disease and other debilitating health problems.
