Dealing with Diabetes - 8 News NOW

Dear Friend,

Thank you for taking the first step in the battle against diabetes. With more than 200,000 Nevadans diagnosed with the disease last year and more than double that amount unaware that they have it, now is the time to be proactive about your health and the health of your family. After all, with the adoption of healthy habits and choices, 91% of type 2 diabetes cases can be prevented.

It is recommended that all adults age 45 and above should be tested for diabetes every three years. We encourage you to visit your healthcare professional to discuss the best course of action.

Watch me every Wednesday at 6pm on Eyewitness News where I’ll provide you with top-line educational information on prevention and control, including details on the latest medical breakthroughs.

Here's to your good health!

Paula Francis
