About this item
"After Gretchen Becker was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, she educated herself on every aspect of this chronic condition--by reading medical and scientific books and journals, talking with doctors, and listening to her own body. In 2001, she marshaled everything she had learned as a "patient-expert" into the first edition of this book. Now in its third edition, The First Year: Type 2 Diabetes guides you step-by-step through your first year with diabetes, walking you through everything you need to learn and do. The book covers each day of your first week after diagnosis, each subsequent week of the first month, and each subsequent month of the crucial first year. In clear, concise, accessible language, Becker covers a wide range of practical, medical, and lifestyle issues, beginning with coming to terms with your diagnosis and then moving on to subjects including: Choosing the diet that is best for you, including the latest on low-carb diets and current ADA recommendations; The role of exercise; Daily blood-glucose testing routines and understanding lab tests; The latest info on medication and supplements, including the new SGLT2 inhibitors and GLP-1 drugs; Networking with other patients, in person and online; Insurance issues; traveling and socializing"--
