Nearly half of Kentucky adults have either diabetes or prediabetes.
But far too many don’t know it.
In a new documentary, KET shines a light on the alarming number of people with undiagnosed diabetes or prediabetes and show how Kentuckians are working to reduce those rates. There is good news to share – with lifestyle changes and proper care and support, diabetes can be managed and in many cases, type 2 diabetes can be prevented or delayed.
Make plans now to watch KET on Monday, February 24 at 9PM EST. You might see some familiar Kentucky faces, as well as Dr. Ann Albright, Director for the Division of Diabetes Translation at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). This program is funded in part by a grant from the Foundation for a Healthy Kentucky.
