This is a readable and comprehensive introduction to the condition with logical suggestions on how to manage it. – Most Highly Recommended. This is a necessary source of information for the recently diagnosed and a continuing source of reference. How much information a newly diagnosed patient is given by those responsible for helping the patient can vary wildly. It can also include information that may be most inappropriate There have always been widely differing views on medical conditions expressed by health professionals,, and Type 2 Diabetes is no exception. The situation is often made more confusing by news media announcements that prove inaccurate, overly optimistic, or pessimistic. In the case of information from news media this is frequently a result of presenters and news managers repeating their interpretation of news that they have no understanding of, or qualification in. In the case of differing opinions from medical professionals there are many possible reasons. Newly qualified professionals have the latest available information from training. Long qualified professionals have a wealth of experience gained from their patients, modified by a recent training course. Knowledge is constantly changing and each patient is an individual which can introduce unique factors. It is therefore very welcome when two health professionals work together to present, in easy to understand words, logically laid out sections explaining what a condition may mean, what the drugs used commonly are designed to do and how the affected individuals can work to manage their condition. There can be considerable differences in the advice given to someone, recently diagnosed, by their doctor, or qualified nurse, even within a country. This book provides a balanced series of sections that explains clearly what can be done to manage the condition by simple steps. Diabetes under treatment can result in low blood sugar as easily as high blood sugar. In most cases there are symptoms to watch out for and the range of medications available for diabetes management have different potential. The authors have explained the relationship of each commonly used medication and how the levels of blood sugar can be reliably checked. General experience shows the relationship between medication, diet and exercise. The good news for diabetics is that the development of good habits can not only manage the condition but can also achieve a 'cure' where it is no longer necessary to take drugs to control it. This will not apply to everyone, but it does demonstrate that the condition can be managed to the point where, for some, it may no longer exist. What is not clear is how long this level of control will continue and vigilance will always be required.
