The View talks about Diabetes Education with Dr. David Nathan from MGH

The MGH Diabetes Center’s very own Dr. David Nathan was featured on the television program The View yesterday. Dr. Nathan gives an overview of the difference between type 1 and type 2 Diabetes and explains how being overweight or obese may contribute to its onset. Dr. Nathan is joined by a patient, a young woman who says she was diagnosed with type 2 Diabetes when she was just 12 years old. They discuss how she enrolled in a clinical trial known as the TODAY study at the MGH Diabetes Center which focuses on learning more about people who develop type 2 Diabetes at a young age.  She has been able to get her Diabetes under control with lifestyle changes and is now off all of her Diabetes-related medications!
