Is this the right book for you? Do you have Type 2 diabetes?

There are two main types of diabetes and you may not be sure which you have. In general, people with Type 1 diabetes are usually young, develop symptoms quite rapidly and need insulin treatment immediately. In contrast, Type 2 diabetes tends to occur in people who are over thirty and above average weight. The onset tends to be gradual and the initial treatment is through diet and tablets.  If your diabetes has been treated this way, this book is for you.

The authors comprehensively answer over 400 questions about every aspect of living with the condition, and their constructive approach will give you all the knowledge you need to deal confidently with your diabetes.
