Diabetes is on the increase in all age groups and is described by the World Health Organisation as an epidemic.
The good news is that effective control can greatly improve life expectancy, as well as reducing the risk of complications such as cardiovascular disease, stroke, kidney disease and blindness.
This book explains how to tackle type one diabetes in adults and teenagers; it also looks at type two diabetes and explains why the dividing line between types one and two is not always easy to draw.
