However, some people may have a disease and not show any obvious symptoms. These health complications can worsen over time and sometimes become life-threatening if the disease is not treated. Fortunately, many of these same diseases can be detected through simple actions, such as routine blood testing, urine tests, and physical examinations. In addition, in some cases, diseases can be completely avoided with preventative medicine, such as vaccines.
Firstly, with most diseases, the condition is best treated when detected and treated early. Moreover, other diseases that can be prevented or minimized with early treatment include:
About 14 Canadians aged 20+ with diagnosed heart disease die every hour, and about 1 in 12 (or 2.6 million) Canadians live with heart disease.
1 in 10 Canadians has kidney disease; that’s 4 million people, and the number of people living with end-stage kidney disease has grown 35% since 2009.
Cancer is the leading cause of death in Canada and is responsible for 28.2% of all deaths. 2 in 5 Canadians (44% of men and 43% of women) are expected to develop cancer during their lifetime, and about 1 out of 4 Canadians (26% of men and 22% of women) is expected to die from it.
Approximately 5.3 million Canadians have diabetes, while 5.7 million have prediabetes. It is estimated that 50% of people with prediabetes will develop type 2 diabetes. Direct costs for medication and diabetes supplies range from $1,000 to $15,000 per year.
Hypertension affects almost 1 in 4 Canadian adults, and the lifetime incidence of developing high blood pressure is estimated to be 90%.
New diagnoses of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are on the rise. The three reportable bacterial STIs in Canada are chlamydia (an increase of 33.1% over the past decade), gonorrhea (an increase of 181.7% over the past decade) and infectious syphilis (an increase of 393.1% over the past decade).
