Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Nearly 20 million Americans are estimated to have type 2 diabetes, and that number is continuing to rise swiftly. "The First Year: Type 2 Diabetes" is "the" indispensable guide for everyone recently diagnosed with the condition and grappling with all the major and minor life changes that his or her diagnosis demands. Patient-expert Gretchen Becker, who herself has type 2 diabetes, walks those newly diagnosed with a chronic condition through everything they need to learn and do during their first year after diagnosis. Becker provides vital information which helps those newly diagnosed more easily manage the vast amount of information they will need to learn to cope with their disease. <BR>This totally revised edition includes updates regarding progressive studies, new drugs, and different insulin treatments. Brilliantly deploying the First Year series' prioritizing structure of focusing on each day of the first week after diagnosis, each subsequent week of the first month, and each subsequent month of the first year, Becker also carefully discusses every critical issue: treatment option, diet, emotional issues related to diabetes, insurance, traveling, exercise, and much more valuable wisdom that is the result of her own and others' first-hand experience.<BR>

Synopsis:

After Gretchen Becker was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in 1996, she educated herself on every aspect of this chronic condition — by reading medical and scientific books and journals, talking with doctors and listening to her own body. In 2001, she marshaled everything she had learned as a "patient-expert" into the first edition of this book, which she has now completely updated and revised. The First Year&reg;—Type 2 Diabetes uniquely guides you step-by-step through your first year with diabetes, walking you through everything you need to learn and do each day of your first week after diagnosis, each subsequent week of the first month, and each subsequent month of the crucial first year. In clear, concise, accessible language, Becker covers a wide range of practical, medical, and lifestyle issues, beginning with coming to terms with your diagnosis and then moving on to subjects including: Choosing the diet that is best for you The role of exercise Daily blood-glucose testing routines and understanding lab tests Medications and supplements Networking with others Insurance issues Traveling and socializing
