Improve your health and feel great using this comprehensive yet simple guide to understanding and controlling diabetes. Everyone has heard of diabetes, but relatively few people know what causes it and how it is treated. This book sorts the facts from the fiction and provides you with the knowledge you need to feel more in control - whether you've just been diagnosed with diabetes or have a family member who is diabetic. Information and a quiz on the tell-tale symptoms of diabetes mean it is also a must for anyone who suspects they may have the condition. Practical and easy to follow, Outsmart Diabetes covers a whole range of topics, including what you should ask your doctor; how to instigate lifestyle changes; the complementary approach; the importance of exercise; what you should be eating; understanding the Glycaemic Index (including a wealth of low GI recipes); plus interviews with celebrity diabetics. Knowledge is power in the battle against diabetes and this reader-friendly, fully-illustrated guide will help you feel confident about playing your part in controlling your health.
