Dr. Kaufmann discusses Type I and Type II Diabetes, obesity, diet, exercise, and medication. Type I Diabetes generally begins in childhood while Type II Diabetes begins in adulthood. Although there are medications for diabetes, the goal is to not take medicine to be healthy. The best way to control diabetes is to lose weight by reducing carbohydrate and sugar intake and increasing exercise. Even if weight loss is not occuring, exercising 45 minutes each day helps the body burn more calories and improve diabetes.
