Seventh-day Adventist church was raised at the workshop in the morning of diabetes, on Saturday. University of Saskatchewan nutritionist Dr. Carol Henry spoke to the faithful during the regular services of the Church, to give an idea of preventive and health advice for type 2 diabetes.
“My goal is to tell you how you can handle,” Henry told the congregation of about 30 people. As someone who has type 2 diabetes itself, Henry said that stress, weight, Diet and exercise are some of the major factors that can control diabetes.
If one doesn’t take measures to stay healthy, complications can form from diabetes such as heart disease, non-traumatic amputation and adult-onset blindness. According to Henry, 10,573 lower limp amputations were performed in 2006 in Canada as a result of complications from diabetes.
“Its one of those diseases that’s taking over,” said Henry. By 2016, Henry estimates that 2.5 million people in Canada will have diabetes.
