"...useful...a good choice for consumer-health collections."—Booklist

Diabetes includes two diseases: Type 1, in which the body does not produce insulin, and Type 2, in which the body can no longer use the insulin it produces. Each one follows different courses of progression and requires different types of treatments. The occurrence of Type 2 diabetes—linked to diet, obesity, and inactivity—is on the rise. More than 30 million American children and adults suffer from diabetes, and approximately 1.5 million new cases are diagnosed each year in the United States, according to the American Diabetes Association. As doctors and researchers learn more about the causes of diabetes and develop new medications and forms of treatment, many patients can get their illness under control and avoid the worst of its consequences.

The Encyclopedia of Diabetes, Third Edition is a complete guide to the different types of this disease, signs and symptoms, and management and treatment. More than 250 entries explain the causes of diabetes, how the disease affects the body, and how it impacts daily life.

Key topics include:

  • Carbohydrate and carbohydrate counting
  • Complications of diabetes
  • Diabetic eye diseases
  • Diabetic nephropathy
  • Diabetic neuropathy
  • Emergency issues
  • Gestational diabetes
  • Insulin and insulin pumps
  • Lifestyle adaptations
  • Medications.
