Host Oprah Winfrey — together with celebrity physician Dr. Mehmet Oz, and exercise physiologist Bob Greene — will emphasize that diabetes is a ticking time bomb and a silent killer, urging viewers to find out if they are at risk for type 2 diabetes.
Covering a wide spectrum of diabetes-related topics, from making healthy lifestyle choices to avoiding diabetes-related complications, Oprah and her health team will talk about diabetes testing and healthy foods, while also introducing viewers to a woman with diabetes on dialysis, who is a double amputee.
As stated by Richard M. Bergenstal, MD, President, Medicine & Science, “We hope that the show will convey the seriousness of diabetes. We also hope the show will empower people and provide hope. Many of the devastating complications of diabetes can be prevented or lessened.”
