Diabetes [electronic resource]: Sweet Poison in the Blood

The global statistics are alarming: diabetes kills one person every 10 seconds, and a limb amputation is carried out as a result of the disease every 30 seconds. What can 21st-century medicine achieve in the face of such ominous data? This film examines the escalation of diabetes cases around the world and looks at examples of concrete progress against the illness. Viewers learn about the basic science behind diabetes; the factors of obesity and poor physical fitness; the roles played by infection and the immune system; the differences between type 1 and type 2 diabetes; and the use of stem cell research and islet cell transplants in treating and-perhaps one day-curing the disease.
