Med School: Breakthroughs in Diabetes

Almost 10% of the US population lives with diabetes – that’s 30 million people, with another 84 million diagnosed with prediabetes. The devastating disease can shorten lives and increase the risk of heart disease, stroke, vision loss, and the need for limb amputation – but it can also be managed with lifestyle changes and exciting new therapeutic advances. Novel drugs and devices are moving the needle forward, care is being delivered in innovative ways, and a glimpse into the future suggests that better treatment strategies, and improved outcomes, are on the horizon.
