Editorial Reviews

Irwin G. Brodsky
This is a diabetes self-care and healthy living manual. The purpose is to provide diabetic patients with information they need for self-care of diabetes and healthy living with diabetes. It is designed to provide the information using the personal experiences and anecdotes of expert health professionals involved in clinical care and teaching diabetes management. Patients with diabetes and their families are the intended audience. The book provides information on the pathophysiology and treatment of diabetes mellitus. It provides information of relevance to both Type I and Type II diabetic patients. The book additionally provides information about the psychosocial aspects of diabetes and the specialized information about diabetes complications and diabetes during pregnancy. The authors have taken great care to provide diabetes information in a very personal manner. The reader is likely to feel part of an intimate interaction with a healthcare professional. The concepts in this book are described in a understandable but sophisticated manner, so some of the text may beyond the grasp of those with a low reading level. The concepts are presented in a fashion consistent with expert consensus in the field of diabetes. Physicians can feel comfortable that their patients will receive conventional but up-to-date medical opinions. There are a few items in the book related to diabetes diagnosis and treatment that need to be updated because of very recent developments in the field.
American Family Physician
Presents the care of diabetes in a very positive manner, one that engages the patient to learn about his or her illness.
Nutrition in Clinical Care
Recommended for its clarity and sound scientific information.
Sherman M. Holvey
I have read just about every book on diabetes written for persons with diabetes, their families, and the general public, and not one comes close to matching this outstanding book. It covers virtually every issue of concern about diabetes and in a thorough and understandable way provides information that is not generally available to nonprofessionals.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Combining the perspectives of the authorsa physician, a mental health counselor and a nurse educatorand drawing largely on their experiences at Johns Hopkins Diabetes Center's self-management program, this comprehensive six-part guidebook aims to help diabetetics take control of their condition. Aided by tables, diagrams and lots of patient anecdotes, the authors identify major types of diabetes, how they are diagnosed and the various treatment options, including diet therapy, insulin and oral medications. Practical advice on all aspects of care ranges from procedures for monitoring one's blood glucose, eating wisely and exercising safely to handling the stress of a job interview and working with an HMO. One chapter aimed at diabetics' families gives dos and don'ts for dealing with common real-life situations. Both short- and long-term complications, e.g., of the eyes, skin, feet and kidneys, are clearly explained, and special coverage is given to the effects of diabetes on sexuality and the problems of gestational diabetes. The final chapter describes current promising research and offers pointers on keeping abreast of new developments. July
Library Journal
Written by a team of Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine practitioners, this valuable guide presents critical information about the physical, emotional, and psychological effects of diabetes. The nature of the disease, diet and exercise, treatments, complications, sexuality, pregnancy, and research are covered, often using the stories and concerns of actual patients. The language used, while sometimes complex in concept, is clear, enlightening, and reassuring to the reader. Positive examples stress the importance of individual knowledge and flexibility in daily life. An excellent beginner's guide, more comprehensive for the motivated reader than the American Diabetes Association Complete Guide to Diabetes (LJ 8/15/96), this book complements The Joslin Guide to Diabetes (LJ 7/95), providing additional information on the subjects of complications, treatments, research, and genetics. A required purchase for all health collections. [See also Laurinda Poirier and Katharine M. Coburn's Women & Diabetes, reviewed above.Ed.]Janet M. Schneider, James A.
