Publisher Comments:

Our diabetes blockbuster, now revised with the most up-to-date information on detection, monitoring, and management

First published in 1999, this friendly guide has long been our top For Dummies health title, with sales of 300,000 copies in previous editions. Now, with cases of type 2 diabetes on the rise and an estimated six million people unaware that they even have the disease, it is time for a thorough update of this indispensable resource.

Diabetes For Dummies, Third Edition covers important advances in the understanding of diabetes, the latest medications and insulin treatments (and concerns about existing medication), new glucose meters that are much less invasive, new insulin pumps that incorporate built-in glucose meters to better mimic the human pancreas, and new information on the cause and treatment of diabetic complications. This authoritative, expertly researched guide offers anyone with diabetes all the facts they need to put together a state-of-the-art treatment program with a doctor.

The book also incorporates new information on diet and exercise, suggesting ways that readers can reduce diabetes risk by promoting a healthy diet and weight loss. It also examines other risk factors, such as family history and pregnancy weight gain. Leading diabetes expert Alan Rubin offers specific advice to parents with obese children who are at risk of developing type 2 diabetes and to elderly patients who suffer from the condition. He also provides information on coping with long-term complications, such as heart disease, blindness, and kidney failure.

Alan L. Rubin, MD (San Francisco, CA) has had a private practice specializing in diabetes and thyroid disease for more than 30 years and is one of the nation's foremost authorities on diabetes. A professional member of the Endocrine Society and American Diabetes Association, he is also the author of Type 1 Diabetes For Dummies (978-0-470-17811-9), Diabetes Cookbook For Dummies, Second Edition (978-0-7645-8450-3), Thyroid For Dummies, Second Edition (978-0-471-78755-6), and High Blood Pressure For Dummies, Second Edition (978-0-470-13751-2).
