Your Guide to Understanding and Dealing with Type 2 Diabetes : What You Need to Know Paperback

Part of the Personal Health Guides series

Description

There are currently over 3.2 million people with diabetes in the UK, or 6 per cent of the adult population, and 85-90 per cent of these sufferers have type 2.

Diabetes mellitus is a disorder where the body doesn't produce enough insulin, or doesn't react properly to the insulin it produces, causing a build-up of glucose in the blood.

Type 2 diabetes often smoulders on for a long time before it is recognised and diagnosed - it is believed that there are hundreds of thousands of undiagnosed cases in the UK.

This book gives the basic information needed to understand what type 2 diabetes is, how to recognise it, and, most essentially, how to manage it, including details on: * The symptoms of type 2 diabetes * Risk factors for type 2 diabetes and how to reduce those risks * The various medicinal treatments and support available * Changes to daily routines, diet, exercise and attitude that can improve life with type 2 diabetes.
