Living the Sweet Life: Diabetes in Micronesia

1998 (26:00 mins) Island Topics #16 Health

Two middle aged men, good friends, learn that they both have diabetes.  One postpones indefinitely the diet and exercise that his doctor advises for him, while the other resolves to do something about the disease.   This video presents a humorous look at the contrasting responses of the two men.  One begins eating local food and jogging. His friend, however, remains as prodigious overeater and as sedentary as ever.  As a dramatization of the lifestyle changes that are needed to cope with diabetes, and the difficulties that these changes involve, this video is unsurpassed.
