Book Description

Nov. 26 2007 Guide for Families
We are on the verge of an epidemic. All over the world, diabetes is surfacing as the number one killer not only in affluent countries but surprisingly enough in the developing world as well. Diabetes experts say that what is heading to America is the equivalent of a medical tsunami. In the last twenty years, the number of diagnosed cases has more than double and the problem is headed to catastrophic proportions with the number of obese adults and chubby children. Touched by Diabetes hopes to raise conciousness and erase the stigma attached to this condition. It purports to create a dialogue among parents, children and clinicians in order to alleviate some of the suffering caused by advanced diabetic conditions. Diabetes has reached epidemic proportions throughout the world and the author aims to impart knowledge and hope. In turn, this knowledge can lead to more effective treatment and control of this disease, and possibly even prevention.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm A Diabetic May 21 2009
By J. Tangorre - Published on Amazon.com
I had recently found out I was a Type II Diabetic and I am being treated with medication. Touched By Diabetes is a book for families and their children to understand the disease. The author, Lucie Ventura is amazing in her dedication and knowledge and applying that to a book that be read, understood and applied to both the young and old. Nice Job Lucie.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your money Dec 8 2009
By Fred Davis - Published on Amazon.com
Having read many books on diabetes, I was disappointed in the information in this book. As a diabetes educator I found most of the information simplistic and inaccurate. Further more on researching the author's background, I found she has no or very little expertise on the subject matter.

1.0 out of 5 stars Was this written by a child? Dec 5 2009
By anonymous - Published on Amazon.com
Obviously written by a rookie with little real knowledge on the topic. Don't waste your money!
