The global epidemic of diabetes and prediabetes afflicts more than 1 billion people. Sadly, more than 50% of people with diabetes do not achieve their desired glucose control. Moreover, less than 25% achieve their blood pressure, cholesterol, and glucose goals.
In his book, Conquer Your Diabetes: Prevention, Control, Remission, Dr. Martin Abrahamson and his co-author Sanjiv Chopra, MD put all the pieces of the diabetes puzzle together, including a concise history of the disease, underlying types and causes, prediabetes, obesity, weight loss, pregnancy, mental health, type 2 diabetes prevention and remission, and latest treatments.
Dr. Abrahamson joins us today to tell us more about his book & his diabetes research. He is an Associate Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and a previous Chief Medical Officer at Joslin Diabetes Center. He lectures globally on diabetes and has spearheaded educational initiatives on diabetes for physicians around the world.
