This new series is for people living with type 2 diabetes and pre-diabetes. Type 2 diabetes is widely misunderstood by both people living with it and the people around them – this often includes their physicians.
The series is hosted by Scott Benner and Jenny Smith, RDN, LD, CDCES. Their simple goal is to help improve the health outcomes of their listeners with these easy to understand episodes.
Through no fault of their own many people living with type 2 diabetes have a limited understanding of the condition and many more have pre diabetes and no idea where to begin.
Type 2 diabetes is frequently downplayed by medical professionals, family and friends. Instructions to “change your diet and exercise more” fall flat when you don’t know what to change or why it matters.
Orders seldom come with clear information about how and when to test or what the results even mean. The list of medications used to treat type 2 diabetes is long and ever-changing. If you are confused about which medicines to look into, lifestyle changes or even what type 2 is, this series is for you!
Scott and Jenny break down everything type 2 and explain why you may want medications like Metformin, SGLT2 inhibitors (Invokana, Farxiga, Jardiance), and GLP-1 receptor agonists (Trulicity, Ozempic, Victoza), and insulin.
When you’re done with the Pro Tip series check out the ‘Type Two Stories’ for insightful interviews with a variety of people living with type 2 diabetes.
This series empowers people living with type 2 diabetes, pre-diabetes, and caregivers with the information, insights, and tools they need to make positive life changes. It is absolutely free and I hope you try it.
