What's Health Got to Do with It?

Stroke awareness; understanding diabetes

If a stroke is suspected, the patient should immediately be transported to the emergency room.

On this week’s episode, Dr. Joe Sirven and his guests discuss stroke, a condition that occurs when blood flow to the brain is blocked. They identify signs and symptoms of stroke, stroke treatment and lifestyle factors that contribute to one’s risk of a brain attack.


Then, we examine diabetes, a chronic disease that affects how the body converts food into energy. Dr. Arpeta Gupta, a practicing endocrinologist, discusses the three types of diabetes, symptoms, treatments and the latest in regenerative medicine.
