Dr. Berkowitz thinks so and will talk about and offer his practical solutions for based on what he has seen in his own patients over the past few years.

Since Jimmy has been experiencing an ODD drop in his blood sugar levels following a meal, he wanted to interview Dr. Berkowitz to get to the bottom of this issue NOBODY is talking about.
