Product Details


Product Description

From Library Journal

If diabetes is "the original do-it-yourself disease," then this book, a revision of the original ( LJ 11/1/81), containing a substantial amount of new material, is an outstanding do-it-yourself guide for both newly diagnosed and long-standing diabetics of all ages. Biermann, herself a diabetic, and Toohey offer a wealth of information in an expanded question-and- answer format. Emphasizing that virtually all complications of diabetes can be prevented by maintenance of proper blood-sugar levels, they discuss the kinds and actions of insulin now available; eating in fast-food restaurants; why insulin cannot be taken as a pill; and the emotional effects of living with a chronic disease. Sections for insulin-dependent and nondependent diabetics, as well as for families and friends of diabetics, are amply illustrated, and references to both consumer and professional literature on diabetes are cited. Highly recommended. -- Karen McNally Bensing, The Benjamin Rose Inst. Lib., Cleveland

5.0 out of 5 stars A Complicated Situation May 14 2000
Format:Paperback
I have the 1994 edition of this book. I looked it up on Amazon.com and the only customer reviewer said that it was outdated! And I wondered why it had not been updated. I compared the review with the picture and description by Amazon.com. Sure enough! 1994 was the last edition. The reviewer was correct. But I wrote a review anyway. And admitted I was wrong (which is highly unusual for me). Amazon.com printed my review but then updated their picture and description to a 1999 edition! Well, I can swing accolades at the book now. Just grab it and you will become interested in the question and answer format. It's an Advanced Dr. Seuss book for type 1 and 2 diabetics. My 78-year-old mother has never read a book on diabetes despite having obtained the disease 61 years ago at the age of 17. The psychological "shock" is horrible for ALL individuals. I tried to get her to read this book and that book for years. But this book is like Adam Khan's "Self-Help Stuff That Works". It's big and clumsy. Big bold questions which are followed by succinct answers. I will make an alsmost quarantee about this book. Or about any teen. If you buy the book and just hand it to them, it is very likely that they will read "some" of it. Because it is so user-friendly like Adam's book. Just leaf through it and you can put it down at anytime. NO COMMITTMENT! I love this book. I'm going to buy the updated copy real soon (within 30 days) and the "Diabetic for
Dummies" book which came out last year. She won't look at the Dummies book. But you just flip open this book and you're studying diabetes! Good luck. I'll review one more diabetes book for obsessive-compulsive math "freaks" like me who love strategies. Good luck and God bless.

Format:Paperback
I went through all of the books in a retail bookstore to find the very best book on diabetes for my mother. And this was the very best! It's wonderful! It poses the whole problem of diabetes for types 1 and 2 in a simple question and answer format. But the reviewer stated this book was outdated! I'll have to do a "run down" on this book. I voted for that reviewer. I'm not afraid to be wrong. JUST NOT SO OFTEN!

This is still my main reference after 4 years with diabetes. I'd recommend, though, that one buy the updated version, as things change so rapidly in medicine.
