Dr. Anuj Bargeva was our special guest this morning just after the 7:30 news. November is American Diabetes Month. World Diabetes Day is November 14th. Diabetes is the 7th leading cause of death in the U.S. The highest percentage of people who have diabetes have Type II...which can be controlled thru diet and exercise. There are also medications available. There is no approved medicine to prevent Type I diabetes, although there is promising research. For more information, go to www.IDERC.com or www.mydiabeteshome.com.
