about book

There are currently over 3.2 million people with diabetes in the UK, or 6 per cent of the adult population, and 85-90 per cent of these sufferers have type 2. Diabetes mellitus is a disorder where the body doesn't produce enough insulin, or doesn't react properly to the insulin it produces, causing a build-up of glucose in the blood. Type 2 diabetes often smoulders on for a long time before it is recognised and diagnosed - it is believed that there are hundreds of thousands of undiagnosed cases in the UK. This book gives the basic information needed to understand what type 2 diabetes is, how to recognise it, and, most essentially, how to manage it, including details on:

• The symptoms of type 2 diabetes
• Risk factors for type 2 diabetes and how to reduce those risks
• The various medicinal treatments and support available
• Changes to daily routines, diet, exercise and attitude that can improve life with type 2 diabetes
