Every aspect of your life with diabetes is covered - from diet, sex and exercise to mood changes, managing blood glucose levels and physical complications arising from the condition. Dr Val Wilson draws on more than four decades of managing the condition and on her professional experience to help readers deal with their diagnosis, consider how it will affect their relationships and lifestyle, with advice on DAFNE for Type 1 diabetics and ways that Type 2 diabetes can eventually be reversed. Real-life case studies show other people's experiences of diabetes-related issues that you might also be dealing with. This is the only book you need to learn how to self-manage diabetes.
"Barbara Mora's (Paiute/Diné) mother, who passed away from diabetes complications, struggled to confront the reality of the disease. "My mother would not deal with diabetes; it was a big scary topic," Mora says. "She only saw the horrible things: amputations, dialysis and death." When Mora was diagnosed with diabetes 14 years ago, she chose to deal with the disease differently. As the fourth generation on her mother's side to suffer from diabetes, many of Mora's family members did not want her to talk about it. "I thought no, I'm not going to go quietly," Mora says. "I'm going to find out everything I need to know about diabetes." After her mother's death, and her father's subsequent passing, Mora felt herself slipping into depression. Rather than falling victim to diabetes and depression, Mora relied on the Diné tradition of praying each morning to restore her spirit. Then she channeled her emotional and spiritual journey with diabetes from denial to depression to staying active and healthy with the disease in the book Using Our Wit and Wisdom to Live Well with Diabetes." from ://indiancountrytodaymedianetwork.com/2011/05/14/native-life-provides-online-health-support-network-34013.

“Covers the basics of food, exercise and medicine, but highlights two things not often found in diabetes books: soul food and spirit.”—A Sweet Life More than 4 million African Americans have diabetes; thousands more have pre-diabetes or are at risk for the condition. But in 21 years as a registered dietitian and certified diabetes educator, Constance Brown-Riggs found few books that even vaguely addressed the unique health concerns of this population. This comprehensive guide includes: The latest medical treatments for diabetes—medications, insulin therapies, blood glucose monitors, plus the pros and cons of supplements, herbs, and alternative diets. What you can’t eat—and what you can. Dozens of mouthwatering Caribbean and soul food recipes, with a two-week menu plan.

Goodwin, M.D., founder, president and CEO, Health Power for Minorities “Connie Brown-Riggs’s . . . culturally appropriate messages are an extraordinary benefit to African Americans, particularly women, who are often not fully aware of the lifestyle changes they can and should make to prevent diabetes and improve their health and that of their families.”—Wendy C. Brawley, publisher and CEO, IMARA Woman Magazine
