Diabetes and Nutrition
Part Three of a Three Part Series

Presented by Stanford Health Library

Type 2 diabetes, formerly called adult-onset diabetes, is the most common type of the disease, affecting 95 percent of people with diabetes. Type 2 diabetes affects people at any age, even during childhood. However, this type of diabetes develops most often in middle-aged and older people, and those who are overweight and inactive.

This series will address some of the big questions about Type 2 diabetes: Who gets it? Can it be prevented or delayed? Can it be helped with lifestyle modifications? Blood glucose monitoring will be offered before each of the Diabetes programs.

Speakers: Kathleen Kenny, MD Clinical Assistant Professor, Medicine – General Medicine Disciplines, Stanford University School of Medicine
Jessica Shipley, MS, RD
