Type 2 Diabetes
The diabetes epidemic is one of the contributing factors of the daily hospitalizations of adults suffering from heart disease and strokes. Dr. Paul Jellinger, Endocrinologist at the Center for Diabetes and Endocrine Care goes over what a person needs to know when diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. There is no cure for diabetes, but there are many ways to control it by lowering and normalizing the glucose levels in the blood. Dr. Jellinger identifies the standard protocols as well as exciting new treatments which can also lower the risks of cardiovascular diseases. He also highlights why an endocrinologist tends to treat diabetes much more aggressively at the onset of the disease: to avoid its detrimental complications to the eyes, kidneys, skin, nerve and vascular systems.
