Paperback / softback
Every three or four minutes someone in the US receives a diagnosis of diabetes.
But, healthy eating - alongside other lifestyle changes and, if necessary, medication - may prevent diabetes from developing and dramatically reduces the risk of diabetic complications such as heart disease, amputations and blindness.
This book shows how to avoid the worse ravages of this disease.
Topics include: types of diabetes; the pancreas and how it controls blood sugar; medication; controlling carbohydrates; guidelines for healthy eating and using supplements safely.
