TAKING CHARGE OF DIABETES


TAKING CHARGE OF DIABETES

READER'S DIGEST    Book Number: 91700    Product format: Paperback

Like an uninvited houseguest, diabetes is something you didn't want in the first place and it won't go away, and worse still it demands daily attention. But while you can't send diabetes home, you can minimise the impact that it has on your health and quality of life. You are the one in control and this book will help you formulate a game plan for keeping your blood glucose in line, making sensible food choices, monitoring levels of figuring out a physical activity programme you can really stick with. Chapters cover Medications and Surgery, Preventing Complications, Complementary Therapies and Breakthroughs for the Future as well as recipes in this very positive handbook written by experts at the Australian Diabetes Council. Maria, a 34 year old participant in a study writes 'One night after dinner I tested my blood glucose and it was 12.4 mmol/L. Then I went for a 20 minute walk and took a reading again, and my glucose level was down to 7.4 mmol/L. I'd never done a before-and-after comparison before, and it was an eyeopener to see how big a difference I could make by just walking.' There is a brilliant sequence of colour photographs for strengthening and toning the body in little routines of about ten minutes like pushing against a wall, dry swimming for core body and the tree pose for balance, and if standing in a queue, an abdominal squeeze or at your desk a thigh toner or a palm clasp. Delicious recipes include a Chinese style triangular parcels of Gingered Crab Filo Parcels or Beef Waldorf for dinner. Whether you have Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes, without unnecessary sacrifice or compromise the book is full of practical tips on management, nutrition, weight loss strategies, self-education, low-GI foods for a gradual release of glucose and learning that not fats are bad for you and carbohydrate should be taken with each meal. 288 large pages in softback, colour photos and diagrams.
