Living With DiabetesStreaming Video - 2011
About every five years people predict how many new cases of diabetes there will be in the future, says Dr. John Buse, "and every one of those predictions has fallen short." With more than 15 million Americans already diagnosed, this program aims to educate viewers about the causes and management of diabetes, focusing especially on type 2. Patients talk candidly about the difficult but necessary step of cutting back on foods that exacerbate the disorder, and how they've made exercise part of their daily routine. The importance of monitoring blood pressure and cholesterol along with glucose levels is also emphasized. Includes commentary from Dr. Steven Edelman and other experts.
