This well received comprehensive guide aims to let you take control of your life with diabetes, both Type 1 and Type 2 and even includes a chapter on reversing Type 2 diabetes, a useful glossary and some delicious recipes. Around 700 people a day are diagnosed with diabetes and globally the figure for sufferers is around 415 million although this does not include children with the condition. Diabetes is a change in your body chemistry that causes too much glucose in the blood because of a lack of the hormone insulin or because insulin can't work properly in the body. The book covers symptoms, why glucose is the issue, diagnosis and the why me? syndrome. Common myths and misconceptions, denial, blaming yourself, anxiety, guilt and stress, coping strategies, relief, changing moods and emotions, depression, and relationships. The book then looks at the practical side of hospital blood tests and monitoring tests, hyperglycaemia, causes of diabetic ketoacidosis (KDA), symptoms and treatment, hypoglycaemia, medication, exercise, alcohol and aspirin. It looks in detail at lifestyle changes, fruit and veg, vitamins and minerals, smoking, sleeping, pregnancy, sex, issues for men such as erectile dysfunction, and all about managing diabetes and self medication, injection sites, insulin pens and other information you should know about Metformin, Acarbose, Glitazones and Meglitinides. Plus warnings about understanding complications for kidneys, eyes, heart, brain, the gall bladder and nerve disease and prevention. It even looks at weight loss surgery and dieting, what care you should receive, your basic rights for a diabetes nurse and consultant and the difficulties for teenagers and students and older people with the condition. Finally advice on the DESMOND course for those with Type 2 diabetes and the DAFNE course for Type 1. 308pp in large softback.
