Videos provide helpful information about diabetes

Cincinnati, OH (April 7, 2015) – Mercy Health has devoted the fifth of its monthly Mercy Health: Helping You Be Well videos to diabetes awareness. Diabetes, the seventh-leading cause of death in the United States, affects 29.1 million Americans.

In four concise videos on Mercy Health’s YouTube channel, Mercy Health experts explain the causes of diabetes, offer prevention ideas, and describe treatments and ways to manage their side effects.

Mercy Health: Helping You Be Well, which spotlights key health issues and tips for healthy living, debuted in December. The videos feature Mercy Health physician experts who are committed to making lives better – mind, body and spirit.
