    Dr Edelman Lets the World Know About Diabetes.

    I am a Type II diabetic and have been for 16 years. I have attended Dr Edelman's Conference almost every year. He has written a book that ALL can understand. He has let the world know, we can take control of our diabetes. The humor and well written text of the TCOYD with help all diabetics control their diabetes. I have followed Dr Edelman's teaching and advice for ten years. I lead an almost normal life. The diabetes field is lucky to have Dr Edelman. This book should be read by all diabetes, their families and healthcare providers.

    MUST BUY for anyone associated with Diabetes

    Have you ever attended one of Dr. Edelman's Taking Control of Your Diabetes conferences? If so, then this book is basically the whole conference. If not, then you should attend a conference if you get a chance. See his website at www.tcoyd.org for more information. Dr. Edelman can not bring his conference everywhere, so he has it in the book. BTW, Dr. Edelman is a Type 1 Diabetic, but this book is for EVERYONE associated with both Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes. The book also covers high bloodpressure and high cholestrol, which people with diabetes often have.
