Hypoglycemia..."The Boogeyman under the bed"...
Everything you ever wanted to know about Hypoglycemia, but were
afraid to ask…
Today on DiabetesPowerShow, we ask one of the finest Endocrinologists in the country, Dr. C. R. Kannan, the tough questions about this dreadful condition. Somehow, the DPS team manages to produce a fun, and funny show involving a very serious topic, Hypoglycemia, while learning more than we ever knew about it.
Joining us today in studio, C. R. Kannan, M. D.
Dr. Kannan is presently Director of Endocrinology and Metabolism at Red Rock Medical Center in Las Vegas. He served as Professor of Internal Medicine at the University of Nevada School of Medicine in Las Vegas from 2009 to 2013, with teaching and patient responsibilities. He was also Consultant in Endocrinology at Southwest Medical Associates in Las Vegas, from 2003 to 2010.
He moved to Nevada in 2003, following many years of academic and clinical practice in Chicago.

DiabetesPowerShow Co-Host, Chris Daniel, who has Type One Diabetes, often experiences Hypoglycemia Unawareness. So when he repels off of a 300 foot cliff, his glucose numbers have to be in check. Last weekend, Chris tested his adventuresome skills at beautiful Lake Powell, where he pushed himself to the limit. Check out pics at DiabetesPowerShow.com
