Diabetes is a debilitating condition that affects millions of Canadians. About 7.5 percent of the Canadian population lives with Type 2 diabetes. Prediabetes, a condition that often precedes the development of Diabetes, affected over 20% of the Canadian population in 2015. There are three types of Diabetes - Type 1, Type 2, and Gestational Diabetes. At Share Lawyers, we know how life disrupting living with Diabetes can be.
Over the years, we’ve represented clients diagnosed with Diabetes and helped them to obtain the long-term disability benefits they deserve for their condition. But it’s not easy to do - most insurance companies deny such claims. To give you a sense of what Diabetes is and what some of our clients have had to endure, we’ve gathered some of our most popular blog posts about Diabetes and our clients who have the disease.
In this blog post we discuss the nature of Diabetes. We describe the different types of Diabetes you can be diagnosed with - Type 1, Type 2, and the more rare Gestational Diabetes. We also discuss the signs and symptoms of the different types of Diabetes, and management of the disease. Learn more.
