Poorly controlled diabetes can cut up to 20 years from your life expectancy. And it’s on the rise, affecting nearly 3 million people in the UK (1 in 20). Much suffering could be avoided if people took control of their diabetes sooner. This concise, authoritative guide shows how a healthy, balanced diet helps avoid the worse complications of diabetes such as cardiovascular disease, stroke, kidney disease, impotence and poor vision. Topics include:
· The pancreas – controlling glucose levels
· Types of diabetes and their symptoms
· Risk factors for diabetes
· Complications of poorly controlled diabetes
· Treating diabetes with drugs
· Treating diabetes by changing your lifestyle
· Diet and diabetes – the first steps
· Using supplements safely
