    00:01 So let's talk about these 4 killer factors.

    00:03 Killer Factor 1 of 4, is having a closed or first degree relative with type 2 diabetes.

    00:10 So this makes you up to 10 times more likely to develop type 2 diabetes yourself.

    00:17 So take a look at this family.

    00:19 Think about your own family history.

    00:21 And I want you to write in close relative equals 10 x, 10 times the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

    00:31 So put that in the personal risk on your notes.

    00:35 So you've got 4 pictures on your screen there.

    00:38 These are visual images to help use your encoding this information to think about the non-modifiable risk factors for type 2.

    00:46 So we've got genetics, age, birth weight, the kind of lumped in there together because the research is mixed on that whether it's high or low in the impact, but I just wanted you to plant that seed to be thinking about it.

    00:58 Next we have ethnicity, right? So there's certain ethnicities or races that are at risk? Now, there's one more risk factor I want to talk about right I've hit the first three bubbles, we've talked about genetics, we've talked about age, we've talked about birth weight.

    01:14 But I want you to be aware that socioeconomic status definitely has a risk factor.

    01:20 The poor the client is the less access they have to healthy foods, to good food choices.

    01:27 Sometimes they're in a food desert.

    01:29 This can be a tremendous risk factor to overcome.

    01:33 So, whether you want to file that in modifiable or non-modifiable if I'm meeting with a patient today, that's not a real easy risk factor to fix.

    01:42 So that's why we put it on here.

    01:45 If you want to discuss this later amongst your friends, sounds like some great conversation.
