Diabetes: A Case Study
This patient weighed 231 pounds at his heaviest. After being diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, he began monitoring both his blood sugar and his diet much more carefully. He's cut down on desserts, learned to watch what he eats, and now his biggest fear is that he might develop Type 1 diabetes, with its more serious side effects. Dr. DeOrio and Dr. Goldberg agree: The patient needs to build on his current success by adding exercise to his health regimen.
