This week: Diabetes, islet transplants and social work

Sep 13, 2018

People who develop Type 2 diabetes have a period of "pre-diabetes," which may last as long as 10 years and exist without symptoms.

Dr. Ramachandra Naik, a professor of endocrinology at Upstate, talks about screening for certain patients and what can be done to prevent or delay the development of diabetes. He also goes over the most common complications on this week’s “HealthLink on Air.”

Also on the program: how islet transplants can help people with severe pancreatic disease or diabetes, plus the role of social workers in health care.

Tune in this Sunday, September 16 at 6 a.m. and 9 p.m.
