Dr. Oz is here with an emergency wake-up call. Then, Dr. Ian Smith, Bob Greene and chef Art Smith on how to stop America's silent killer: diabetes.
Now, I like Oprah, and I really respect Dr. Oz, but I am wary of what will be said on this episode. I hope they clearly communicate the differences between type 1 and type 2--like how type 1 is not preventable and how very stressful and difficult it is to manage. I am worried that it will simply be a discussion of obesity and will cause more confusion about type 1 diabetes.
Oprah does not have a great track record for accurately covering medical issues. Remember how she "blew out" her thyroid from working too hard?
