111: Mastering Diabetes, Part 1

with Dr. Cyrus Khambatta


Dr. Cyrus Khambatta (aka Mango Man) was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in 2002, when he was a presumably-healthy 22-year-old college athlete. Did you know, there are an estimated 75 million people, in the United States, that are currently UNDIAGNOSED and UNKNOWINGLY living with Diabetes or Prediabetes?!?

In this episode Cyrus not only explains the difference between Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes, but also explains some of the warning signs and even introduces a new (to me, anyway) diagnosis of Type 1.5 Diabetes.
