"Quick and easy top ten lists on a range of important Type 2 Diabetes topics for the newly diagnosed. This new guide from Karen Graham is a shorter companion book to Complete Diabetes Guide and Diabetes Meals for Good Health Cookbook. Diabetes Essentials includes easy diabetes tips covering 72 subjects, including medications, nutrition, gut bacteria, exercise, recipes and more. For each of the 72 subjects, Registered Dietitian and Certified Diabetes Educator Karen Graham along with MD and Diabetes expert Mansur Shomali offer the ten top tips for that subject (with 720 total tips across all subjects), including 'Answers to Your First Diabetes Questions,' 'Prediabetes,' 'Diabetes First Ten Days,' 'Diabetes Medical Terms,' 'Lab Tests,' 'Testing Your Sugar Level at Home,' 'Low Blood Sugar Episodes,' and 'Steps to Reduce a High Morning Blood Sugar.' Meant as a Diabetes primer for the newly diagnosed, this book contains essential advice meant to supplement the other two highly-respected books in the series. It will arm those who might be confused about their diagnosis and about their path forward with information about their condition and about managing it using nutrition, exercise, medication and other strategies."-- Provided by publisher.
