Reviews

"The book explores everything; diagnosis, dietary and exercise advice, landmark studies, and even the technology used in insulin pumps and glucose meters... Any medical language is clearly explained making it easy to think about how this information can be conveyed and best understood in clinical practice... Given that no two diabetic patients are the same, something the book consistently points out, this would be particularly valuable for the ward-based bedside nurse at the forefront of patient care looking to comprehend this variety as quickly and easily as possible and incorporate it into their practice."

- Nursing Times

"Diabetes Head to Toe is a comprehensive guide to understanding and living with an epidemic, chronic disease."

- Harvard Magazine

"Do you need a comprehensive reference book about all things diabetes? Pick up a copy of Diabetes Head to Toe... Dr. Kalyani is at the forefront of the movement to educate health care professionals about diabetes language and stigma and her book reflects that. You won't find any judgments, just a lot of practical information about overcoming denial, educating yourself, and making appropriate lifestyle changes... Everyone's diabetes is different and this book perfectly addresses that fact."

- Shelby Kinnaird - Diabetic Foodie

Endorsements

"An impressive book that will be of great interest to the millions of Americans with diabetes and prediabetes."

- Marie T. Brown, MD

"Diabetes is not one size fits all, and Diabetes Head to Toe addresses this perfectly. This book is a valuable resource for both patients and healthcare providers—likely to become dog-eared at the corners from constant references. Phenomenal!"

- Anna Norton, CEO, DiabetesSisters

"Diabetes Head to Toe is a concise yet comprehensive guide to living with diabetes. It provides wonderfully clear explanations of common things that people with diabetes encounter, from pumps and meters to complex laboratory results. A useful resource!"

- Vivian A. Fonseca, MD, President for Science and Medicine, American Diabetes Association (2012)

"Even after living with type 1 diabetes for nearly 20 years, I still learned a lot from Diabetes Head to Toe! Often, time with your doctor is limited. This book told me what I needed to know and easily explained what it all means in simple terms."

- Quinn Nystrom, author of If I Kiss You, Will I get Diabetes?

"Diabetes Head to Toe provides direct answers to questions diabetes patients ask. It is complete, concise, and provides insight for your next discussion with healthcare professionals. I wish this book had been available when I was diagnosed with diabetes over 40 years ago!"

- Bruce Taylor, Chair, Diabetes Patient Advocacy Coalition
