For the first time World Health Day will focus on diabetes. Manitoba Regional Manager for the Canadian Diabetes Association Andrea Kwasnicki says diabetes is at epidemic levels across the country and the world and people play a role in their own health outcome. She explains diabetes is a self-manageable disease, especially type two diabetes. Kwasnicki said it can be managed through healthy food choices and physical activity. Kwasnicki adds you can learn more at their website at diabetes.ca, where you can find interactive tools, solutions, and self-management tips that will help you move forward with your diabetes.
