Free Online Educational Videos for People with Diabetes

Joslin Diabetes Center, global leader in diabetes research, care and education, announced today a new free educational tool on its Web site -- the Staying //Healthy with Diabetes video series. The set of six short videos gives people with diabetes important information about the regular tests they need to have done to live a healthier life. Several of Joslin's internationally recognized physicians are featured in these videos, available now on http://www.joslin.org.

The number of Americans with diabetes approaches 21 million, and now 54 million Americans have pre-diabetes.

"These videos give people with diabetes details about what the six tests measure and guidelines on what the results should be. This allows patients to work closely with their healthcare team to achieve their personal goals and stay healthy with diabetes."
