Diabetes, another reason to take care of yourself



This is World Diabetes Day, and Diabetes Rouyn-Noranda wants to abolish this chronic disease.

Type 1 diabetes is caused by the pancreas, which does not provide enough insulin to circulate glucose, so sugar in the blood.

So people with insulin need to spray several times a day. I'm diagnosed in childhood or an early adult.

Adult type 2 diabetes is developed due to poor lifestyle habits, such as poor diet, lack of exercise or socio-economic factors.

The Rouyn-Noranda Diabetes Administrator, Anne-Marie Trépanier, has been living with type 1 diabetes for 23 years.

She sees her illness as a message to look after her.

"The better we eat, the more we move it, the easier it is to manage the state of life. Of course, insulin is the answer one one at all times, and it also brings us rigor, every day, we have to monitor several times a day with diabetes, insulin, drugs. "

– Anne-Marie Trépanier

Make as many people as possible aware

There are 240 patients with Rouyn-Noranda diabetes. The organization also offers support services, conferences and a camp for diabetic children in the region.

Anne-Marie Trépanier expects a child in the next few months, even having a difficult pregnancy even more rigorous to control her diabetes.

The young girl adds that World Day also raises awareness.

"We really want to let them know about the disease, to make it talk as much as possible because the more we talk about it, more people will be aware of the disease, [ils] maybe caring for them. We are lucky enough, in the region, to be surrounded so well by the best teams. "
