Young Adults and Type 2 Diabetes & a Serious Plasma Shortage
This week, we look at the serious complications that young adults experience from Type 2 diabetes. We'll talk with Maria "Sukie" Rayas, MD, assistant professor of pediatric endocrinology and one of the co-investigators of a 15-year study at the University of Texas.

Then, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or COPD, is the third leading cause of death worldwide according to the World Health Organization. On our Mayo Clinic Q&A segment, we'll hear from Dr. John Costello, a consultant pulmonologist at Mayo Clinic Healthcare in London, to learn treatment options and how COPD is diagnosed.

And, there's a critical shortage of plasma. We'll talk with John G. Boyle, a patient and advocate who relies on plasma-derived therapies and the former Immune Deficiency Foundation CEO and President, to learn the basics of plasma donation.
