Question from Web TV:
I would like some information on diabetes and women's issues.
The best source I’ve found on women and diabetes is Lois Jovonovic-Peterson. She has written books on the subject that my patients have really liked.
Additional comments from Lynn Wilson, diabetes nurse specialist:
I don’t have anything specific to send you, but I know the gender separate issues are out there. Each summer at our teen camp (grades 8-12) we have separate sessions where we discuss sex/drugs/rock and roll with the kids — the guys have a discussion regarding their fears of impotence plus any other issues of concern, and the girls talk about pregnancy, dieting, etc.
[Editor’s comment: One book you might try is The Diabetic Woman.
