December 13, 2015

Earlier this month, the CDC reported that between 2008 and 2014, the number of new cases of diabetes in the U.S. declined by 20 percent. And, while that was good news, the report also explained that the number of American adults with diabetes has quadrupled since 1980. On the next Mayo Clinic Radio, diabetes specialist Dr. Robert Rizza discusses the diabetes epidemic. Also on the program, recent conflicting studies about the value ofcalcium in maintaining bone health in older adults have caused confusion. Endocrinologist Dr. Bart Clarke sorts through the details and offers recommendations for calcium intake. And with the official start of winter just around the corner ... emergency medicine specialist Dr. David Nestler has tips on cold weather safety.

Here's the Mayo Clinic Radio Podcast.
