There have been major breakthroughs and technological advances for diabetic patients, as they no longer need to prick their finger to keep track of their blood sugar levels.

The Medical Director of Endocrinology at John’s Hopkins All Children’s Hospital, Dr. Supamit Ukarapong, joined Gayle Guyardo, the host of the nationally syndicated health and wellness show, Bloom, to share more about the new treatments and technologies.

You can watch Bloom in the Tampa Bay Market weekdays at 2pm on WFLA News Channel 8.

Bloom also airs in 40 markets across the country, with a reach of approximately 36 million households, and in Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands and Madison, WI.
