In the completely revised and updated fourth edition of The Diabetic�s Book, June Biermann and Barbara Toohey present the latest information on effective diabetes therapies and scientific advances. With their characteristically personal and upbeat writing style, the authors guide diabetics and their families by showing them how to handle real-life issues often neglected in books about diabetes. Both Type I and Type II diabetics learn how to select a doctor; cope with insurance and HMO�s; deal with interpersonal relations and work situations; and rebuild their lives by coming to terms with the demands of the disease. Included in this edition are diet techniques based on the recently revised American Diabetes Association�s nutrition guidelines; a section on health insurance; information on new oral hypoglycemic pills and pill therapies; and emerging possibilities for a cure. In addition, there is a special supplement on the low-carbohydrate diet that many people find to be the fastest, most effective and pleasant way for Type II diabetics to lose weight, and for both types to achieve normal blood-sugar levels. This perennial bestseller has proven itself to be a reliable, practical, comforting, and honest guide to living the good life with diabetes. Now it is better than ever.
