VIDEO - Early detection and new treatments paying off for diabetes patients

Now early detection and proper treatment is paying off; lowering some common complications. A 2012 CDC study showed diabetic amputations went down 65 percent between 1996 and 2008. Vision problems were also lower, dropping from 24 percent in 1997 to 17 percent in 2010. In this video, Dr. Sal Lacagnina, Vice President of Health and Wellness for Lee Memorial Health System, discusses the current state of diabetic treatment.
