Diabetes Health TV Is Off and Running: Three New Live Shows Coming Right Up

Scott King, Editor-in-Chief

| Aug 21, 2007

You may as well get into the habit of tuning in to Diabetes Health TV at noon Pacific time, because we're rolling out new shows at a rapid clip.

The rest of this week is full up with exciting guests, so grab a lunch and start a noontime tradition of lively live TV with Scott King and Diabetes Health. Talking about diabetes has never been so much fun.  To watch the shows and call in with your questions, just go to our website at www.diabeteshealth.com.

Noon on Wednesday: Scott King will be fitted with his very first continuous glucose monitor. A Dexcom staffer will be here to show him the ropes, and, if everything goes as planned, he should be all set up by the end of the telecast. (Of course, things might not go as planned, but that's the thrill of a live show.) *

Dr. Richard Bernstein

Noon on Thursday: Famed low-carb groundbreaker and diabetes icon Dr. Richard Bernstein will be our guest by telephone. Always a rebel, he's had diabetes for over sixty years, and now he's got some amazing news about a possible cure. Any conversation with Dr. Bernstein is sure to go in unexpected directions, so tune in for the fireworks and be ready to call with your questions. **

Noon on Friday: Scott will be talking with Kim Higgins, RN, CDE. She's been a diabetes educator for over thirty years and has had type 1 herself for over 35 years, so she really knows diabetes inside and out. A fifteen-year pumping veteran and mother of three, she has plenty of tips about how to put together a diabetes team and how to keep diabetes from taking over your life. The phone lines will be wide open, so go ahead and call in. It's your chance to ask a real expert all the diabetes questions that you've never been able to get answered. ***

Next Week: Check the Diabetes Health website for the latest news about our upcoming schedule.
