Diabetes Alert Day: Raising Awareness and Encouraging Testing
The fact that 29 million Americans are living with diabetes may not surprise you. But, the fact that more than 8 million Americans have the disease and don't even know it, well that might get your attention.
Getting your attention is the idea behind 'Diabetes Alert Day' which is today as declared by The American Diabetes Association.
Lisa Shah, an endocrinologist with Aurora Health Care stopped by the studio today to talk about what Diabetes Alert Day is all about.
Shah discussed what the risk factors are for type two diabetes, what the symptoms are, how to manage diabetes, and more.
