An estimated 41 million Americans have the condition identified since 2002 as
prediabetes, which, if left unchecked, inevitably will lead to full-blown
diabetes. From one of the world's leading diabetes "patient-experts," this
first-ever practical guide offers fifty essential, informative ideas and simple
steps to help this vast and rapidly growing constituency manage their condition
and thereby reduce their chances of developing full-blown diabetes. Prediabetes
clearly explains what readers can do today, no matter what their age, and
whether or not they have a family history of diabetes, a severe weight problem,
or are members of an ethnic group at high risk-including Hispanics, Native
Americans, African Americans, and Pacific Islanders. Helpful drawings and graphs
are featured throughout in this new, revised edition.
