NORWALK, Conn., May 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- UBM Medica US announces that Consultant Live has created photo-rich topic centers to help busy primary care physicians recognize physical signs of diabetes. Diabetes mellitus is a major public health problem; the number of people with this disease has grown significantly since 1995, and the CDC is calling for strategies to help prevent and better control it.

- Diabetes Disorders—A Photo Essay This slide show provides visual presentations of a range of diabetes-related problems
