Are you at risk for developing diabetes?

Reduce Your Type 2 Diabetes Risk

What is Prediabetes?

Almost 6 million Canadians have prediabetes, and many of them don’t know that they have it. Prediabetes refers to blood sugar levels that are higher than normal, but not high enough to be diagnosed as type 2 diabetes. If left unmanaged, prediabetes can develop into type 2 diabetes – but there are multiple ways to prevent this and change your future. Know your risks - see your pharmacist for a personalized risk assessment.
