Over the past 2 decades, the obesity epidemic has led to a dramatic increase in the prevalence of type 2 diabetes (T2D) in the U.S. It is estimated that over 35 million U.S. adults have diabetes, of which 90-95% of cases are T2D. Alarmingly, an additional 92 million U.S. adults have prediabetes. In a recent opinion article published by the American College of Cardiology, experts have stated that "it's time for Cardiology to get back in the game." Dr. Robert Benton is our Clinical Research Director at Capital
Cardiology Associates and is here today to help breakdown this study and call to fight cardiovascular disease.
