Episode Description:

Diabetes affects 24 million adults and children in the U.S. and is the leading cause of blindness, kidney disease, and amputations. This chronic disease is a major public health crisis as much as a personal medical condition. By one estimate, the incidence of diabetes will nearly double in the next 25 years, reaching more than 44 million people.

Diabetes: Chronic Epidemic is designed as a basic primer on the disease, describing the types and causes of diabetes, its prevalence and impact, how patients can live with the condition, and how the disease is treated. The program brings together experts in diabetes and public health and discusses in patient-friendly language information about the major aspects of this chronic disease and – most important - what patients need to know about the condition.
