How to Make the Diagnosis of Type 2 Diabetes Less Difficult

This episode of BDI Briefs explores the emotional side of type 2 diabetes diagnosis with Dr. Polonsky and Dr. Guzman. It is a critical moment that can reverberate for years and set the tone for diabetes management. We emphasize the need for healthcare providers to address the strong negative emotions patients face, encourage hope, and provide resources like the "Don't Freak Out Booklet" to hopefully create a better diagnosis experience for people with diabetes.
