The Growing Impact of Diabetes in Canada

Canada has one of the highest rates of diabetes prevalence at 9.2 per cent in comparison to its peer countries.  Even more concerning is that Canada’s rate of diabetes-related mortality is the third-highest among its peer countries.

The total population with diabetes is estimated to be 2.7 million people (7.6 per cent) and this figure is projected to rise to 4.2 million people (10.8 per cent) by 2020.  While the number of Canadians diagnosed with diabetes is already high, an additional one million are estimated to be living with undiagnosed diabetes.  Currently, one in four Canadians lives with diabetes, undiagnosed diabetes or prediabetes; and this will rise to one in three by 2020 if current trends continue.  Given projections of the total Canadian population by Statistics Canada of approximately 35 million people by 2020, this would mean almost 11.7 million people will be living with diabetes, undiagnosed diabetes or prediabetes by 2020 unless action is taken now.

The cost of diabetes today is $11.7 billion annually and should trends continue, by 2020 that cost will rise to $16 billion annually.

Diabetes – a global pandemic

It is anticipated that more than 400 million people worldwide will live with the disease by 2030.

Today, more than 9 million Canadians live with diabetes or prediabetes.

• 3 million with diabetes (2.5 million diagnosed, 700,000 undiagnosed)
• 6 million with prediabetes

Childhood obesity has become North America’s leading health threats. Today nearly 1 in 3 children and teens in the U.S. are overweight or obese. The obesity epidemic is clearly taking its toll, as more and more kids are developing conditions and diseases typically associated with adults. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 1 in 3 individuals born in the year 2000 will develop type 2 diabetes. In vulnerable populations, that number increases to 1 in 2 individuals. If obesity among kids continues to increase, many believe this current generation of young people will become the first in American history to live shorter lives than their parents.

We are engaging to create solutions that improve children’s access to healthier foods and encourage physical activity that will inspire all young Americans to develop life-long healthy habits.
