A diagnosis of diabetes may send shivers through the patient, ripples that reach out to family, friends, associates, acquaintances, and folks who'll someday cross paths – personally or professionally. Diabetes For Dummies speaks to anyone who wants to know what the disease will mean in their own or someone else's experience, from the first moment when the word darts out of the doctor's mouth through all the ups and down of a long and satisfying life. This down-to-earth, compassionate guide gives you the nitty-gritty on wa ys to
