In the U.S., 30 million people are living with diabetes and that number is expected to climb to 50 million in the next 20 years. The good news: advances in diagnosis, monitoring and treatment have allowed people with diabetes to live rewarding and fulfilling lives. We talk with Dr. Abrahamson and Dr. Chopra, physicians and co-authors of the book Conquer Your Diabetes: Prevention, Control and Remission. We also talk with Dena Irwin, Integrative Nutritionist at the Community Health Center who is also a certified specialist in diabetes care and education. Mindy Todd hosts.
