Approximately 30.5 million Americans are living with diabetes, and 193,000 under the age of 20 are estimated to have diagnosed diabetes. Since our inception, Jumo Health's goal has been to create health care experiences that give patients and caregivers the tools to understand complex medical issues and effectively manage their health. This led us to create an educational video that does just that.
So, what is diabetes? This animated video features Eric, a young boy who was recently diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. Nervous and afraid about what this diagnosis means, Eric receives a helpful lesson from his friend, Tammy. Tammy explains how type 2 diabetes affects the body and the difference between type 1 and type 2 diabetes. She also provides practical tips for effective management.
