Overview

Discover Exciting New Treatments for Diabetes
If you are one of the 16 million Americans diagnosed with diabetes, now you can take control and begin enjoying life again—today! This book answers your questions, dispels the myths, and clearly lays out the truth about diabetes and what you can do to manage the condition. In short, it helps you get your life back. Inside is compassionate, practical, and immediate guidance for anyone affected by the disease, including:
·The causes, symptoms, and patterns of diabetes
·Critical dietary management information to improve your quality of life
·The latest drug treatments and possible side effects
·Effective ways to harmonize the mind-body connection

"Two critically important components of treatment for people with diabetes are self-testing and education. Informed patients have a better likelihood of truly taking control of their situations. In this book, Porter Shimer takes you through the story of diabetes—the disease that is still the leading cause of new cases of blindness, kidney failure, and nontraumatic limb loss in the United States and a major cause of heart disease. You will find the history, physiology, treatments, and all the essential material you need to be master of you own fate." —From the Foreword by Gerald Bernstein, M.D., F.A.C.P.
