Read Excerpt

Amazon.comBarnes & NobleIndieBound

Managing a chronic disease like diabetes can be overwhelming, even frightening—especially if you’re among the 1.5 million Americans who are newly diagnosed each year.
Now there’s sound, steadying advice written by the experts, so you can live well with diabetes, not just manage it. What to Expect When You Have Diabetes is a worthy companion amid the glut of questions. This go-to guide with a can-do approach makes understanding diabetes easier.

The information in this book is heavily weighted toward people with type 2 diabetes, primarily because 95% of the people who have diabetes have type 2. Type 1 is much more rare, but except for a few instances, most of the treatment and lifestyle suggestions are helpful for both.

A Q&A format, organized by topic for quick reference, provides authoritative answers in straightforward language to a range of questions:

• Is diabetes a dangerous disease?
• Should I tell my boss and coworkers that I have diabetes?
• Will the medication I am taking for depression affect my blood sugar?
• What should I do if I forget to take my diabetes pills?
• How do I reduce fat in a meal when I eat at a restaurant?
• How do I get the regular exercise that I need to improve my blood sugar?

This book makes the perfect companion to a health-care team and is sure to become a trusted reference for ongoing care.
