Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Seymour (endocrinology, Univ. of Miami Sch. of Medicine) has added another readable book to the diabetes bookshelf. A major strength of his work is its showing basic tasks such as foot care and the preparation and injection of insulin through step-by-step procedures and line drawings. Complications are explained well, and brief sections on how diabetes affects the young, Hispanics, and African Americans are included. One caveat: Seymour specifically recommends the Pritikin diet, though it is of questionable value for underweight or some Type I diabetics. This book will effectively complement, but not replace, the more comprehensive and authoritative American Diabetes Association Complete Guide to Diabetes (LJ 8/96) or the Joslyn Guide to Diabetes (LJ 7/95).Janet M.
