Diabetes causes your blood glucose levels to be above normal some or all of the time. Your blood glucose levels may be high even though you haven’t eaten recently. So, checking the amount of glucose in your blood can determine whether you have diabetes or not. There are four types of tests used to diagnose diabetes: A1C test, fasting plasma glucose test, random plasma glucose test, and two-hour oral glucose tolerance test. Plasma glucose tests measure the amount of glucose in the plasma of your blood to determine whether the level is higher than normal.

I have had diabetes for quite a few years, but recently was promoted to insulin status. I have been searching for a single source of information that was both simple and yet included more technical details of what was going on.

The book does a very credible job of both for many aspects of diabetes. As an example, it provides a description how insulin works at the body and cell level, the effects of exercise, diet, timing, lifestyle, and many of the other factors that affect blood glucose levels. The descriptions start at a high level (e.g. exercise uses glucose in the blood, so levels tend to drop) to a more theoretical discussion of insulin interacting at the cellular level within your body and how your liver and other organs react.

The same type of treatment is also provided for other subjects, ranging form what to do when you are sick; sex and libido issues; diet; types of insulin; managing diabetes around sports, exercise, work, travel, stress, family, entertaining; interaction of factors; complications of high and low sugars; and a bunch more.

In short, there are no doubt books which cover individual aspects of any part of diabetes with more detail and rigor, but if you want one book that does a very credible job on most of the topics, this is a good choice.

PROS:
Very readable.

Well organized- individual topics are fairly well indexed and broken down by topic, and for each topic, the discussion breaks down how this might affect different portions of the population (e.g. Type1, Type2, Gestational).

Seems to be written by people who both have actual experience as diabetics and real medical knowledge. Does not have the latest fads.

Reasonably up-to-date

A lot of info for less than $10

CONS:
My guess is that different sections are edited by different people, so the same information can be repeated multiple times. Still, it does serve to make each section self-contained.

Some of the stuff is a little obvious- such as the tip to shop around for best prices on insulin. Still, my guess is that no matter how obvious, someone probably never thought of it.

Sections on health care coverage are so general as to be useless

I would have liked to see more references included for nerds like myself who would like to read more technical reference on the subject. Sure, you can go hunt for them, but the authors no doubt had them at their fingertips.

SUMMARY:
An outstanding value, lots of good info. I had confidence that the material was good information, not someone's opinion

I was hoping for a little more after care/diabetes management with this book but overall it's pretty comprehensive. It spends a lot of time explaining the disease which is great as an introduction to those new to diabetes. Overall, I'm glad I bought it and it's helpful.

If your new to Type 2 Diabetes you need this book. Do not go threw this alone, this book is like a guide to all the questions you may have. Its a great buy and a must have if you are a type 2 diabetic.

This is a great users guide & reference manual. I recommend this book for anyone that needs amplification regarding the many aspects of diabetes. If you know anyone recently diagnosed, or "lacking in knowledge" this is the book for them.

I ordered the American Diabetes Association Complete Guide To Diabetes when my wife was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. We knew very little about the disease. I highly recommend this book! It was very informative, but in terms that I could understand. If you have questions about diabetes, this book can help you to understand the answers and even point you to possible conversations you may need to have with your doctor.
Thetalune
Such great info in this book. I have gone back to this book several times and looked things up after being to my Dr. So much information. Must buy for anyone dealing with this issue.

If you are serious about winning against your diabetes, this is the best place to start and to refer back too. It is well written, well organized and packed with useful information. Between what my doctor, dietician and this book taught me, I dropped my HBA1C from 11.3 to 7.1 is 3 months.
This book is extremely informative with clear-cut and concise evidence-based diabetes knowledge for those who are just learning about diabetes as well as those who have had it for years. This is a book for ANYONE who wants to to know more about diabetes and its treatment. I highly recommend it.
