#9: Type 2 Diabetes: Treatments, Complications, and Societal Impact

Welcome to another episode of the Medical Narratives podcast with Dr. Michael Gordon. My name is Regina Starr, and today we have an exciting episode focusing on Type 2 diabetes featuring our host, Dr. Michael Gordon, a geriatrician and our special guest, Dr. Irving Gottesman. Dr. Gottesman is an assistant professor of Medicine, Faculty of Toronto, Temerty School of Medicine and Staff Endocrinologist at Trillium Health Partners Credit Valley Hospital.

We'll delve into the topic of Type 2 diabetes, its impact on society, and discuss the potential complications and dangers associated with treatment inertia. As well, we will review the various treatment options, but before we dive into the main focus, this would not be the Medical Narratives podcast without a good story.

Please note, that to access this episode in full instead of the teaser available just below you would need to login.
