The topic of Oprah’s show Thursday is diabetes.
In an ideal world, Dr. Oz would present accurate information and actually differentiate between Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes and dispel some common myths.
I’m not holding my breath.
The title of the show says it all:
America’s Silent Killer: Oprah and Dr. Oz Want to Save Your Life
Dr. Oz is here with an emergency wake-up call. Then, Dr. Ian Smith, Bob Greene and chef Art Smith on how to stop America’s silent killer: diabetes.
Obviously a show about Type 2, but let’s see if they actually say that.
Let’s hope they don’t disseminate misinformation to the masses!
Millions and millions of viewers.
Speaking of diabetes on the small screen, I saw on this past Sunday’s episode of dLifeTV that the main character in the show Army Wives is diabetic and they actually portray it accurately. (I.e., it’s not Steel Magnolias!)
Do you watch that show?
