This video notes the increasing numbers of people with Type 2 diabetes, and provides strategies to prevent or delay its onset in people at risk of developing the disease. Interviews with health professionals, including physicians, nutritionists and exercise physiologists are skillfully interwoven with the stories of a variety of individuals with diabetes risk factors (or the disease itself in one case) who have made the lifestyle changes necessary to improve their chances. The narrator and experts thus underscore the considerable benefits to be found in “small changes over time” in diet and weight management and exercise in helping to offset the dangers of this common, challenging disease. Well organized and easy to follow, this video should be included in most health collections
