Synopsis:
A chronic disorder characterized by high levels of blood sugar, diabetes can lead to a host of complications, including heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, blindness, kidney disease, nervous system disease, and limb amputation. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), an estimated 30.3 million people of all ages or 9.4% of the U.S. population had diabetes in 2015. Despite its prevalence, many Americans are unaware of the basic facts about diabetes and the progress being made in the fight against it. Diabetes Sourcebook, Seventh Edition provides basic consumer information about the different types of diabetes and how they are diagnosed. It discusses strategies for controlling diabetes and managing daily life challenges. It includes information about the complications of diabetes and their prevention and offers guidelines for recognizing and treating diabetic emergencies. The book concludes with updated information regarding the most recent research in diabetes care, a glossary of related terms, and a list of resources for additional help and information. This book is divided into parts and chapters. Parts focus on broad areas of interest. Chapters are devoted to single topics within a part.
