Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
June Biermann and Barbara Toohey, whose numerous books (e.g., The Diabetic's Book , LJ 3/1/90) have inspired many newly diagnosed diabetics, join a renowned diabetologist to focus on issues faced by the diabetic man. They suggest diabetes is either ``Type U'' or uncontrolled, or ``Type C'' or controlled, with control being not only desirable but the only way to sidestep the well-publicized but avoidable complications of this chronic disease. In a lively, conversational format, the authors reassure and help the diabetic man gain control of his life through careful management. Medicine, nutrition, sports, sex (impotence being a particular concern), and traveling are all discussed. Women will find this book helpful in learning how to support the diabetic man or male child in their lives. Highly recommended.-- Anne Washburn, Smith, Helms, Mulliss & Moore Lib., Greens boro, N.C.
