Listen as Dr. Oberg introduces herself and shares what type 2 diabetes is.

Dr. Oberg:
Hi, I am Dr. Erica Oberg. I am a naturopathic physician licensed in the state of Washington and also a public health researcher. I practice at the Institute of Complementary Medicine in Seattle, Washington and work with women on all types of chronic conditions.

Type 2 diabetes is a condition that we often refer to as one of the end results of poor lifestyle choices through the lifetime. What we actually see are high levels of blood sugar and all of the metabolic risks that go along with that.
