In Diabetes Rising, investigative journalist Dan Hurley chronicles the modern diabetes epidemic: how the disease has grown so dramatically, why the American Diabetes Association focuses its attention on just a small handful of available treatments, and why the research being done today does not look beyond accepted types of treatments.

 

With ground-breaking research and compelling stories told through an investigative, historical, and narrative lens, Diabetes Rising offers riveting insight into the struggle between a persistent malady and the medical community’s ongoing search for answers. Just as Eric Schlosser’s Fast Food Nation uncovered the sordid details leading to an epidemic of obesity, Dan Hurley uncovers the hidden truths about diabetes, including what is being researched and what is not.
