Type 2 Diabetes: Importance of Screening and Prevention

Type 2 Diabetes: Importance of Screening and Prevention

My first encounters with patients with diabetes were in a hospital setting in the final two years of medical school. I remember witnessing the complications of diabetes: patients suffered heart attacks or strokes, others required dialysis after kidney failure, still others had chronic numbness or pain caused by the effect of high blood sugar on the nerves in their legs.
