about this item
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 smolders on for a long time before it is recognized and diagnosed—it is believed that there are hundreds of thousands of undiagnosed cases. This book gives the basic information needed to understand what type 2 diabetes is, how to recognize 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; and changes to daily routines, diet, exercise, and attitude that can improve life with type 2 diabetes.
