Diabetes is a health condition that affects how your body turns food into energy. Diabetes is the number one cause of kidney failure, lower-limb amputations and adult blindness. It’s also one of the most common causes of erectile dysfunction. Let’s talk about this global pandemic and how to take control.

Please join Dr. Ali Chisti, Internal Medicine Hospitalist, from 
The Queen’s Medical Center - West O‘ahu to discuss:

  • What is a hemoglobin A1c?
  • How to prevent erectile dysfunction and blindness caused by diabetes
  • How to avoid kidney failure and loss of limbs
  • Why does the body need diabetes medicine, and what lifestyle choices can naturally lower your body’s need for insulin
