This valuable guide presents critical information about the physical, emotional, and psychological effects of diabetes... An excellent beginner's guide, more comprehensive for the motivated reader than the American Diabetes Association Complete Guide to Diabetes... A required purchase for all health collections. Library Journal Combining the perspectives of the authors-a physician, a mental health counselor, and a nurse educator-and drawing largely on their experiences at Johns Hopkins Diabetes Center's self-management program, this comprehensive six-part guidebook aims to help diabetics take control of their condition. Aided by tables, diagrams, and lots of patient anecdotes, the authors identify major types of diabetes, how they are diagnosed and the various treatment options, including diet therapy, insulin, and oral medications. Practical advice on all aspects of care ranges from procedures for monitoring one's blood glucose, eating wisely, and exercising safely to handling the stress of a job interview and working with an HMO.
