Product Description


'Like a good wine, this book has got better and better over the past 10 years and I will certainly recommend it to my patients, as I have the previous editions. I suppose there must be questions which it does not answer, but it is difficult to think what they are. There is even advice on parachuting and scuba diving which are omitted from many other books. In summary, I think it is brilliant, exactly what one would have expected from the three authors, all of whom I have known for over 20 years.' Professor Robert Tattersall, Emeritus Professor of Clinical Diabetes, Queen's Medical Centre, Nottingham 'This book contains just the type of information that patients and their carers really want to know, presented in an interesting and understandable form. It is this kind of book that gives patients the ability to take control of their lives and run!' Professor Terry Feest, Professor of Clinical Nephrology Richard Bright Renal Unit, Southmead Hospital, Bristol 'When I was first diagnosed with type 2 diabetes I read every book I could find on diabetes ... and then I came across your book in my doctor's surgery. I sat in the reception area when I went for my diabetes induction course and read your whole book in one day - excellent! So well put together and so informative and easy to understand.' Mrs Clare Mehmet, Stratford '... in style and substance, this is an excellent book. People with and without diabetes will find it very useful. I recommend every diabetic to own a copy of this interesting book.' Mrs T. Menon, London 'An excellent book. It is comprehensive, informative, and easy to read and understand.' Don Kendrick, Seaton, Devon 'Diabetes - the 'at your fingertips' guide is a marvellous book - just what the layman needs.' Mrs P. Pilley, Hornchurch 'I like the form it takes (questions and answers); it makes it much easier to find the specific areas when a problem does arise. Also it makes easier reading for picking up and putting down without having to wade through chapter after chapter of heavy medical jargon which for the lay person can be very difficult to take in and understand.' Mrs Pam Munford, Lincoln 'I have read the book myself from cover to cover and found it to be most informative, up-to-date and presented in a format which is easy to assimilate by the majority of people with diabetes who will undoubtedly relate some question to a particular experience of their own -and find the answer.' Philip Whitmore, Macclesfield 'I think the book is excellent value since it answers all the basic questions of diabetes and has answers to questions I have not seen written down before. (In fact the whole family is interested in reading it.)' D. Ball, Nottingham 'My family have found the information in your book of great value - it has been a godsend in many ways - we hope that it will help many more in the same situation.' Mrs P. Greasley and family, Stoke-on-Trent '... it will be a very useful reference book for patients and health professionals alike.' Mrs Penny Rodie, Dietitian, BUPA Roding Hospital, Ilford 'My father has very long-standing and brittle insulin-dependent diabetes who thought he knew all there was to know about his condition. However, he was clearly most impressed with your book and has found it informative and useful. He is a man who is extremely difficult to impress and you have achieved it. Well done!' Mrs Rachel Booker, Cheltenham 'I have found it extremely helpful and informative, and have learned a lot from it ... your book is so good and I hope more diabetics will get a copy.' Mr E R Carr, North Ferriby
