Type 2 Diabetes

  • Aired: 05/16/2012
  • 26:46
  • Rating: NR
Millions of Americans have been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, and many more are unaware they have the disease. Unmanaged, it can lead to heart attacks, strokes, blindness, and kidney failure. New research shows that weight-loss surgery can reverse the disease - or can it? In this episode we examine bariatric surgery as a cure, along with who’s at risk and how to manage type 2 diabetes.
