Barnes and Noble Basics Diabetesby Paul Heltzel, Elizabeth Morgan
You've just learned you have diabetes, and you're scared: as the 17 million Americans suffering from the disease know, it's stressful caring for an illness that requires 24/7 monitoring. Will you need to give yourself shots? What happens if you accidentally take too much insulin? How can you avoid suffering the side effects diabetes can cause? This reassuring manual will show you what to do, guide you when you see your doctor, and help you feel in control of your illness. It includes all the latest treatments (traditional, alternative, nutritional) as well as cutting edge therapies involving stem cell transplants. But you'll also find out what life is like with diabetes, how to cope with the psychological impact of having a chronic disorder, and how to talk to friends, family, and co-workers about the illness.
