Common and Preventable Health Concerns and What You Can Do Stay Healthy
Come and learn the risk factors for common chronic diseases, early symptoms, how to properly interpret your Lifelabs test results, and what to do in order to take charge of your health.
Chronic diseases are among the most common and costly health problems facing Canadians today. We know that approximately 1 in 3 (1 in 3!) Canadians have been diagnosed with diabetes or pre-diabetes, and that just under 10% of Canadians are diagnosed with heart disease every year, leading to many tragic, premature deaths. Health Canada estimates that approximately 14 Canadians over the age of 20 years old with diagnosed heart disease will die every hour.
The good news is that these diseases, while common, are also among the most preventable.
The onset of these conditions can be delayed or even reversed through lifestyle changes such as diet and nutrition, movement and exercises, nutrient supplementation and stress management. And this all starts with understanding what are the causes of these disease, and what can be done about it.
We know that the impact of chronic diseases becomes more challenging with age, and can severely affect quality of life. Understanding how your body works and what the risk factors are for developing these conditions will allow you to arm yourself with the knowledge you need to live your healthiest life.
