The number of Canadians with diabetes has increased in recent years, according to a new report from the Global Burden of Disease.
In 2017, the rate of diabetes among Canadian adults was the highest in the world.
The report said that in 2018, it will be the highest among all countries, with more than half of Canadians having diabetes.
The country with the highest percentage of people living with diabetes is China, with over 50 per cent of the population.
The next most prevalent countries are Brazil (24 per cent), India (21 per cent) and the Philippines (17 per cent).
In 2018, Canada ranked second to the United States on the global list of most obese countries, according a new study.
The study said that the country has more than 2 million people with obesity and the rate is at a record high.
The researchers found that the percentage of adults with diabetes in Canada has risen from 18 per cent in 2016 to 20 per cent today.
About half of those with diabetes live in the GTA region of the country, which has more residents than any other city in the country.
