Real-Life Guide to Diabetes

Here’s everything you need to know about diabetes in a one-of-a-kind book packed with information you won’t find anywhere else. Using an easy-to-search format, Real-Life Guide to Diabetes lets you find the answers to your most pressing questions quickly and easily. Other books give you complex systems to manage your diabetes, but those rarely work in real life – it’s time for a more realistic approach.

The Real-Life Guide to Diabetes by Hope Warshaw and Joy Pape is a simple-to-read, all encompassing guide to living with diabetes, both type 1 and type 2. Included are an excellent explanation of sugar substitutes and oral medications (for type 2), a good description of ACE inhibitors and ARBs, and thorough clarifications of both micro-and macro-vascular complications. The book is filled with colorful photos and graphics which help explain each topic. Chapters begin with a summary of “What You’ll Learn,” giving you an introduction to what’s coming. And “Red Flag” sidebars highlight areas that may lead you astray. Highly Recommended.
