Blood Sugar Rising Preview
Blood Sugar Rising follows the diabetes epidemic in the U.S. Diabetes and pre-diabetes affect over 100 million people in the US, costing more than $325 billion each year. Blood Sugar Rising puts human faces to these statistics, exploring the history and science of the illness through portraits of Americans whose stories shape the film.
Diabetes in Our Communities

Rural areas, indigenous communities, and other lower income communities, have a higher prevalence of diabetes (and other diseases) because of the lack of access to healthy foods.

Blood Sugar Rising is a PBS special from WGBH, about the diabetes epidemic in the United States. This clip explains the disease, and how it affects the body, outlining the important role played by the hormone insulin, as well as the differences between Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes.
