We know the key to health is to eat well, exercise and get plenty of rest. We aren't however always good at following this simple advice. In Acadiana for example, diabetes is one of the top health issues facing the population, as we reported in the August/September 2016 issue. The good news is, the human body has a remarkable ability to heal and repair itself, especially when under the care of an adept doctor.
As part of this issue's fitness and nutrition coverage, we're offering up our first ever Top Doctors list. The doctors in this list are at the top of their fields and have passed a rigorous screening process to be included. Read about the toughest cases of three of the doctors and save this list for when you need to call in a professional.
