(WTNH) — In this week’s Ask the Doctor segment, we are talking about diabetes.
For more insight, News 8’s Darren Kramer spoke with Dr. Beth Collins. Collins is double board certified in plastic and reconstructive surgery.
Diabetes affects more than 30 million people. A new study shows there is a genetic link between where you carry your body fat and your risk of diabetes.
Some of the questions we asked:
– Many people miss the signs and symptoms of diabetes. What are they?
– There’s Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. What’s the difference?
– How are they treated?
– There’s a new study that changes liver cells in pancreas cells to produce insulin. How does that work?
Check out the video above for Dr. Beth’s answers, and catch News 8 at 5 p.m. every Wednesday for our “Ask the Doctor” segments.
