Diabetes: Trends, Challenges, Solutions, Dr. Joel Zonszein

Joel Zonszein, M.D., professor of clinical medicine at Einstein and director of the Clinical Diabetes Center at Montefiore Medical Center, discusses alarming changes he's observed in the severity of type 2 diabetes during his more than three decades of treating patients. Dr. Zonszein explores the disturbing trend of young people, many of them teens, developing an aggressive form of type 2 diabetes that often is accompanied by high blood pressure, high cholesterol and fatty liver disease. He also addresses the special challenges of type 1 diabetics and suggests best practices for managing both types of the disease. This topical news segment is hosted by Paul Moniz, managing director of communications and marketing. (January 21, 2011)
