Publisher's Description

About 16 million Americans are affected by diabetes. Worldwide, 200 million people are estimated to have the condition.
Friendly and empowering in approach, Diabetes - A Practical Guide to Managing Your Health is the complete guide to diabetes, offering all the information people need to understand the condition and manage their lives so they stay in the best of health. The book’s opening section offers authoritative yet easy to understand explanations of what goes wrong in diabetes; the differences between the various types; and the signs and symptoms to look for.
A wealth of easy-to-follow advice on diet and exercise concentrates on helping the reader adapt an existing lifestyle rather than making radical changes. Comprehensive information on monitoring blood glucose and using drug treatments (including insulin) helps the reader avoid hypoglycemic attacks and episodes of hyperglycemia. Day-to-day essentials such as employment, driving, travel, and accessing healthcare services are discussed, as well as special situations such as diabetes during pregnancy and childbirth. Finally, a section on possible long-term complications gives advice on assessing the risk and preventing problems from developing.
The particular concerns of babies, children, and teenagers with diabetes are addressed in a separate section, offering advice to parents and as well as teenagers.
