Understanding Type 2 Diabetes

I'm sure that you all know at least one person, be it a friend or family member, that has been diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes. I personally know of a few myself.
Understanding Type 2 Diabetes is an invaluable resource as it offers the latest advice in a clear, easy-to-follow format. 
The book explores a range of topics including what diabetes is, how it is diagnosed, and how to make necessary changes to relieve symptoms including dietary changes and exercise.
It also looks at how diabetes effects different parts of the body including the heart, mind, kidneys, bladder and feet, and ways to prevent and treat these problems.
It explains terms like hypo, blood glucose, insulin and blood pressure in a clear and detailed manner.
This book is great for carers, health professionals, and diabetics, whether long-term or recently diagnosed. 

Both books are available from the 1st April through 


  1. This would be good for my Dad. He was diagnosed with Type 2 a few years ago, but really is the worst diabetic. Eats a pack of biscuits and then wonders what went wrong with his sugar lol.

  2. These books would be good to add to the health resource library in our workplace.


  3. So good to know that books like this exist.

  4. I think it would be fascinating reading about these conditions. Always better to be informed than not!

  5. As someone who is one of the four with IBS I have an interest in the book but I also know what my reasons for having it are. I have another book from this publisher that is behavioural in its messages. I would like those who write the books to have had the conditions...I am being somewhat cynical I guess because I am 'living with it' and it is not predicable nor prescriptive. IBS mystifies the medical profession. Thanks so much for sharing. Thank you for linking up for #lifethisweek 14/52. Next week: Easter


I read and appreciate every comment; thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts!
