Diabetes, both types 1 and 2, is a common condition that is becoming more widespread. Over three million people in the UK have been diagnosed with it, and it is believed that many more have it without being aware of the fact. Worldwide, it affects well over three hundred million. Diabetes is a condition that can be present at birth, or it can develop in later life. But whenever it presents itself, the sufferer needs to know how to cope with it, who they can turn to, what lifestyle changes they may need to effect, and what treatments are avaliable. All that information is here. Whether you have been diagnosed as an adult, or are looking after a child with diabetes; whether it is Type 1 or Type 2, whether it is affecting your weight, or your skin, or your eyesight - this book will tell you all you need to know.
