Speaking of Health Lecture Series – Wednesday, October 28, 2015
If you haven’t heard of it yet, you will. It’s called diabesity, the development of Type 2 diabetes because of obesity.
If current trends continue, by 2030, 44 percent of Americans will be obese. Obesity will contribute to 6 million new cases of Type 2 diabetes in the next 20 years.
Are you at risk for diabesity? Learn more about what it is, what the signs are, and what can be done about it. How does diet play a role? What advances in treatment can help people regain control of their weight, improve their health and help prevent or stop diabesity?
Find out with Alan Parsa, MD, endocrinologist and medical director for the diabetes program at The Queen's Medical Center – West O‘ahu; Robert Eager, MD, bariatrician; and Cedric Lorenzo, MD, general surgeon and medical director for the Queen’s Comprehensive Weight Management Program.
