Over 100 million Americans are impacted by diabetes today. Diabetes rates are higher in Black and Brown and low-income communities. How do diabetic patients living in low-income communities manage this disease? Blood Sugar Rising: NYC follows Tracey Tirado-Vasquez’s journey with Type 2 Diabetes. From her diagnosis to how she manages diabetes in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, we see first-hand the lengths to which Tracey must go to manage this life-threatening disease. (Blood Sugar Rising: NYC is a digital companion series to the national PBS film Blood Sugar Rising.)
