This groundbreaking book reveals how science and medicine have traditionally tried to make diabetes simple and orderly, despite its obvious messiness and complexity. The result has left patients, carers and health professionals confused and frustrated. Using complexity science, Riding the Diabetes Rollercoaster provides a radical new approach to understanding and managing diabetes that embraces its uncertainties and challenges. From a complexity perspective, the diabetes rollercoaster is normal and is a mirror of life itself. Learning to embrace and use the tools of complexity can completely alter your approach to diabetes.
