The ABC’s of Diabetes

This animated video makes the ABC’s of diabetes as easy as 1-2-3. Produced by Dr. Mike Evans, an Associate Professor of Family Medicine and Public Health at the University of Toronto and a staff physician at St. Michael’s Hospital, the video walks viewers through some simple steps of understanding the importance of good diabetes management.

What’s best is that it’s all done in an easy-to-understand animation. Because what’s worse than having something explained to you in a way that’s totally confusing!?

In addition to offering clear and concise examples of things to look out for in your own management program, Evans makes it clear that he utilizes the same approach with his patients. A lot of times the ideas and concepts that go into managing such a complicated disease can be incredibly overwhelming and intimidating. Dr. Evans takes a lot of that intimidation and confusion out of the conversation, putting things in simple terms with obvious visuals.

Does your doctor do the same?

Watch and learn what you can look out for, as well as which concepts you might want to ask for clarification on the next time you’re at the doctor! Don’t forget to let us know what you think in the comments below!
