In Canada, South Asian immigrants are the fastest growing visible minority group. Not only is this community at high risk for developing diabetes, but they tend to be diagnosed at a younger age. Fortunately, by improving lifestyle habits, we can prevent or delay the development of diabetes and its bad consequences (e.g., heart attack, stroke, blindness).

This work is published by the UBC-VGH Hospital Foundation. Its work was supported by the Peer-Led, Empowerment-based Approach to Self-Management in Diabetes (PLEASED) study, and funded by the Azad and Yasmin Shamji family.
