During my transition from adolescent to adult, I developed blood sugar swings, eye problems, asthma, and anxiety. Shockingly, when I went to various doctors for treatment of these problems, the usual response was "I can't help you".

The result is a unique and highly informative book that will help many American patients and physicians to properly deal with chronic illness.
