An estimated 1.2 million people in Ontario have been diagnosed with Type 1 or Type 2 Diabetes. It is also estimated that by 2020 that number will reach 1.9 million. The Central East LHIN region has a higher ratio of diabetes than the Ontario average. For every 100 adults in the Central East LHIN region, about 11 are living with diabetes. This prevalence (10.80 per 100) is higher than the Ontario average (9.64 per 100). Diabetes prevalence is highest in the Scarborough Cluster (12.45 per 100). A higher than average prevalence is also seen in the Durham Cluster (10.09 per 100), (ICES, 2011).

The Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, has funded the Central East Centralized Diabetes Intake and the Central East Centre for Complex Diabetes Care (CCDC) as part of the Ontario Diabetes Strategy to improve the care provided to Ontarians living with diabetes. In the Central East region, the CCDC and the Centralized Diabetes Intake are managed by the Central East LHIN Home and Community Care.
