How are the different forms of this disease treated? Can gestational diabetes become a permanent condition? Can diabetes ever be managed successfully with diet and exercise alone?

The second edition of this valued resource includes up-to-date information on
•How diabetes is diagnosed
• The two types of diabetes
•The role of genetics
•Improvements in blood glucose measurement
•Good nutrition and regular exercise
•Insulin and non-insulin medications
•Insulin pumps
•The emotional side of diabetes
•How families are affected and how they can help
•What to do if diabetes affects your work
