I Have A Little Sugar

I Have a Little Sugar, produced by Ben Viccari and Lalita Krishna of Third Element productions, explores important issues surrounding diabetes. According to the Canadian Diabetes Association, diabetes affects more than three million Canadians and is the world’s 4th leading cause of death.

“We applaud Third Element Productions for choosing to inform and reflect key at-risk communities through personal stories that reveal the facts in I Have a Little Sugar,” says Madeline Ziniak, National Vice President of OMNI Television.

In addition to presenting current research findings, I Have a Little Sugar also features four people who share their stories about coming to terms with diabetes:

John – distanced from his Aboriginal roots, he tried to ignore his diabetes;
Siva – diagnosed with Type 1 later in life, used it as an opportunity to educate others;
Julian – learned how to use an insulin pen while his friends studied for their driver’s test;
Williana – recently diagnosed with diabetes; unemployed, and overcome by memories of her grandmother’s death from diabetes.

“I Have a Little Sugar was developed in answer to the need for increased education and awareness about diabetes, especially among those who are most susceptible,” says Lalita Krishna, Writer/Director of the film. “We thank OMNI Television for helping us to create and target this message.”
