Type II Diabetes has reached epidemic proportions in the United States, and in Iowa 7.5% of all adults have been diagnosed with the disease. Today on Talk of Iowa, we listen back to a conversation from last year about diabetes, Type I, Type II and gestational diabetes. We discuss risk factors, prevention, advances in treatment and find out what it’s like to live with the disease.

Charity Nebbe is the host of IPR's Talk of Iowa
