  Back to Pills, Pearls & Patients (3P)

Hello again and welcome to Episode 5 of the 3P podcast, Pills, Pearls and Patients. I'm your host Dr. Marina Malak.

Now I wish that I could say XYZ disease is the most prevalent disease that we see in primary care because to be honest there are so many of the "top most common" illnesses that we see. This can range from diabetes to hypertension to depression and anxiety to asthma. I mean of course these are probably some of the most common or at least prevalent illnesses we see and I want to start off by saying although this podcast episode is going to talk about diabetes, there you go I spoiled it.
