Doc Talk #212 – How to Prevent (or even reverse!) Diabetes

In this show we looked at the case of a 60 year old man who works for a motor dealership. He was fairly typical of an Albertan, carrying a few extra pounds and not physically very active.

As with our previous shows, we have used a couple of calculators to determine the risks – and you can too. We like QDiabetes and CanRisk. (As ever, we recommend interpreting the results of these calculators with support from a medical professional).

Click above to listen again and learn about the number one risk factor for diabetes (as well as some others). We provided listeners with some top tips, whether you are looking to reduce your risk of diabetes or get better control if you already have the disease.
