November: Diabetes Awareness Month

Ruth, a 69-year-old Simcoe resident, has been living with Type 2 diabetes for over 20 years. Before joining the Haldimand Norfolk Diabetes Program at Norfolk General Hospital five years ago, she struggled with her weight, felt pain in her knees and feet after a walk around the block and was on multiple medications. Since joining the program, she has learned a new way of eating and the importance of exercise. She has lost 100 pounds, can walk comfortably, is on a lower dose of medication for blood pressure, and no longer needs medication to control her blood sugar. Ruth talks about her experience and how the program has changed her life in the Hamilton Niagara Haldimand Brant LHIN Voices in the Community video: https://youtu.be/R-BTEMdDy0I
