The second edition includes up-to-date information on: How diabetes is diagnosed; the two types of diabetes, and the role of genetics; improvements in blood glucose measurement; good nutrition and regular exercise; insulin and non-insulin medications; insulin pumps; the emotional side of diabetes; how families are affected and how they can help; what to do if diabetes affects your work; and complications from head to toe.
