Diabetes Sourcebook, Fourth Edition contains updated information for people seeking to understand the risk factors, complications, and management of type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes, gestational diabetes, and monogenic forms of diabetes - those that result from mutations in a single gene. It offers information about lifestyle modifications related to delaying the onset of diabetes and managing its course after it has been diagnosed. It discusses medical interventions, including the use of insulin and oral diabetes medications, self-monitoring of blood glucose, and complementary and alternative therapies. Diabetes complications, including eye disease, gum disease, nerve damage, and kidney problems, are also addressed. The book concludes with a glossary of related terms and directories of information for people with diabetes or kidney failure.
