ABOUT MAYO CLINIC

Mayo Clinic took root in farm fields near Rochester, Minnesota, in the late 1800s. It grew from the medical practice of a country doctor, William Worrall Mayo, and the partnership of his two sons, William J. and Charles H. Mayo - affectionately known as Dr. Will and Dr. Charlie. The brothers' innovative ideas and tireless work in learning and creating new surgical techniques attracted international attention.

Today, Mayo Clinic - one of the world's oldest and largest multispecialty group practices - comprises more than 45,000 physicians, scientists, nurses and other staff at its Rochester, Minnesota; Jacksonville, Florida; and Arizona locations; and its regional community-based health care practices.

At Mayo Clinic, patient care, medical education and medical researchwork together for the good of the patient.

With this depth of medical knowledge, experience and expertise, Mayo Clinic occupies an unparalleled position as an award-winning health information resource.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The latest condition-specific volume from the Mayo Clinic (Mayo Clinic Fitness for EveryBody, Mayo Clinic Guide to Alzheimer's, etc.), this guide to diabetes takes on the seventh-leading cause of death in the U.S., a disease afflicting 24 million Americans. With contributions from a number of doctors, nurses, and educators, the message is encouraging: "you can enjoy an active and healthy life... if you do your part." Chapter one presents disease facts, spelling out the differences between type I (largely heredity) and type II (the fast-rising kind, related to lifestyle issues like obesity). Subsequent chapters explain blood glucose levels, how to monitor them and how to control them with medication and diet. The book iterates often that, "contrary to popular myth," there "is no diabetes diet," but rather a simple strategy of moderation, variety and regular meal times (which epicureans in mourning should appreciate, along with easy, imaginative recipes like Baked Chicken with Pears). The next chapters deal with food, exercise, self-motivation, and specific medical issues like insulin pumps and prescription treatments. Much information on prevention gives this volume a wider appeal; any household with a diabetes patient (or a family history) should find use for this thorough, friendly, fully-illustrated overview.
