Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Completely revised and expanded from the original 1987 publication, this edition succeeds at being simultaneously entertaining and informative. All three authors have written extensively on diabetes; both Bierman and Jovanovic-Peterson are themselves diabetic. Constructed mostly as a spirited dialogue between "Dr. Lois" and her well-informed coauthors, and often drawing on their own experiences as well as questions from readers of The Diabetic Reader newsletter, the text covers a wide range of concerns. Puberty, pregnancy, breast feeding and menopause are well-covered, and there are some surprising nuggets of information, such as how jet lag affects blood sugar levels or how shift work can impact insulin requirements. Especially valuable is the up-to-date drug information and the advice on getting good diabetic care from cost-conscious HMOs. Clear line drawings, 800-numbers for sources of helpful products and a well-annotated reading list augment the text. Essays on pregnancy for women with gestational diabetes and Type I diabetes conclude the book. (Aug.)
