Book Description

Over 18.2 million people in the United States have some form of diabetes—and more than eight million of them are 60 years of age or older. Those who have been recently diagnosed may feel scared, confused, and full of questions. What is the difference between types 1 and 2? Will I have to take shots every day for the rest of my life? How can I prevent diabetes’ debilitating long-term effects? And what should I do in case of an emergency—such as insulin shock?
