Publishers Description
With increasing numbers of Americans becoming diabetic or being diagnosed as "pre-diabetic" each year, this standard guide to dealing with the disease is more timely than ever. Written in a friendly, accessible tone, Diabetes Mellitus focuses on the everyday concerns of diabetics, teaching them how to balance diet, medication, and exercise for optimal health. The diet sections offer clear explanations of the nutritional aspects of the condition, including serving portion sizes, exchanges, and sample meal plans with tasty recipes. The exercise sections discuss useful, low-impact workout regimens. This updated edition also provides extensive coverage of the new delivery methods that are already available or soon will be, including inhalers and other technologies developed through biomedical research. Filled with illustrations, charts, tables, and worksheets, Diabetes Mellitus has become established as one of the most frequently revised, updated, and reliable books in the field.

Reviews - What do customers think about Diabetes Mellitus: A Practical Handbook?

Great resource!  Sep 11, 2008
As a newly diagnosed diabetic I was overwhelmed both emotionally and by all the information out there. I looked at vetted websites, talked to my medical group and went to the local library. By far the most readable and easiest to use reference book was Diabetes Mellitus! My husband also found it invaluable. For example, what is a protein and how many grams should I have for dinner. It was easy to locate the food breakdowns and using the menu guides we could create a meal plan. We liked it so much we bought the latest edition and have found it is the only reference guide we need.
Diabetes Mellitus  Jan 5, 2007
My husband struggled with many health issues . Often he referred to this book . It helped him manage his diabetes better . The part on how to eat and manage when ill is very good.
Good book  Jul 14, 2005
Although I am a physician and knew alot about diabetes already, I found this book helpful when I was diagnosed with the disease. It is also useful for other family members to read so that they may understand what their loved ones are facing.
The best practical handbook for people with Diabetes  Nov 23, 2002
I bought this book many years ago when I first discovered I had diabetes. It has been a god send. I use it as my bible. You forget from time to time and it is the best reference book I know of. In fact my daughter just became aware that she also has this disease and I purchased her a copy of this book. She agrees with me. It has helped her as well.
A Very Practical Handbook  Nov 29, 2001
Diabetes Mellitus: A Practical Handbook is an excellent book. I would highly recommend it for newly diagnosed diabetes patients as well as diabetics who are "old timers" at this disease. The food exchange lists are simply fantastic as they are divided into "lean meat" with serving portions, "medium fat exchange", and "high-fat meat" with serving portion sizes. The vegetable choices, fruit choices, bread/starch choices. All of this makes life a little more easier when you are suddenly faced with a new way of eating. The sample meal plans are wonderful too. This book should be on the reference list of all physicians who have or will have diabetic patients. The book is written in a clear and easy format and it is simple to understand. I would also recommend it for the younger adolescent diabetic.
