What is Diabetes and Why Should I Care?

In this important health five-part series about Diabetes, Bobbie begins this Episode One with a helpful, insightful  overview about the much misunderstood and highly under estimated disease that is growing much too rapidly in our world today.

We also  take a page from celebrity notebooks to talk about how those in the demanding spotlight deal with their health challenge, how they manage it and what you can learn from these great role models.

Oscar Winning Actress Halle Berry, for example, is today the spokesperson for children's diabetes but she herself was not diagnosed until she lapsed into a diabetic coma for a week before regaining consciousness. Diabetes can sneak up on you! And it can walk boldly among us with nearly one in ten people courting diabetes from every walk of life. Other celebrity diabetics you'll be surprised to hear are Super TV Chef Paula Deen, Tennis Legend Billie Jean King, King of Rock 'n Roll Elvis Presley, and even Silver Screen Diva Mae West.

Today Bobbie talks about Diabetes and Prediabetes, which is estimated to affect 8.3% of the American population and what you can do - everything from recognizing the initial signs to managing this long term illness with integrated medicine and alternative treatment.

Look for Bobbie's accompanying Diabetes episodes, which expand on this topic and give you the newest (and newly revised) traditional medical treatment guidelines as well as alternative healthcare options for this rapidly growing disease.
