By 2030, at least one in ten adults in India will have type 2 diabetes - totalling over a hundred million people. But it needn't mean a world of frustration, restrictions and complications. Most people with diabetes are able to live full, free and healthy lives. But it takes clear understanding and good management.
In Understanding Type 2 Diabetes, Professor Merlin Thomas of the renowned Baker IDI Heart and Diabetes Institute, clearly explains:
what diabetes is and how it comes about;
what is the right diet for someone with diabetes, and how to achieve it;
how exercise can improve and maintain your health;
the medical aspects of diabetes care, including the best ways to control your waistline, blood glucose, blood pressure and cholesterol levels; and
how to prevent and treat the major complications of diabetes.
Having diabetes is not easy. But its management needn't be complex or complicated. This book will guide you to successfully manage diabetes - to bring it under control and keep it that way - and lead a full and healthy life.
