Tip of the Day

Get a handle on diabetes costs. Two new studies on diabetes reveal the number of Americans with the disease spent $12.5 billion last year on drugs to manage it, and that although newer, more costly medications are driving the spending surge metformin (an inexpensive, reliable generic) may be more effective than sticker-shocking Avandia.

EBN reporting from earlier this year aims to help you "close the gate" on diabetes -- a gateway illness that can lead to or worsen hypertension, heart disease and obesity.
