Pediatric Diabetes
There are more than 30 million people in the U.S. who have diabetes, and that includes close to 200,000 Americans under the age of 20 who have been diagnosed with the disease. Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes are different diseases, but both are caused by a lack of insulin. Both forms of the disease are increasing in children, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Monitoring and managing blood sugar levels is important for diabetics, and this can be particularly challenging for children and adolescents.

On the next Mayo Clinic Radio program, Dr. Ana Creo, a pediatric endocrinologist, and Janet Hansen, a nurse and diabetes educator, will discuss pediatric diabetes. Also on the program, Tim Myer, a Mayo Clinic cystic fibrosis patient, will share how a new medication helped him get off the lung transplant list. Dr. Mark Wylam, a Mayo Clinic pulmonologist and Myer's physician, will join the discussion.

Colorectal Cancer
Among cancers that affect men and women, colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the U.S., according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Most cases of colorectal cancer begin as small, noncancerous (benign) clumps of cells called polyps. Over time, some polyps become colon cancer. Because these polyps may be small and produce few, if any, symptoms, health care providers recommend regular screening tests to prevent colon cancer. These screenings identify and remove polyps before they become cancerous. March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness month, a time to educate the public about the importance of colorectal cancer screening.

On the next Mayo Clinic Radio program, Dr. John Kisiel, a Mayo Clinic gastroenterologist, will discuss colorectal cancer. Also on the program, Dr. Michelle Mauermann, a Mayo Clinic neurologist, will explain peripheral neuropathy, a nerve condition that causes numbness and pain in the hands and feet. And Dr. Thomas Salinas, a Mayo Clinic prosthodontist, will share how oral health affects heart health.
