Take control of your health ...

Did you know more than half of all Americans who have diabetes are over age 60? And according to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases — of those over age 65, almost 1 in 5 has diabetes.

These figures are alarming — but there is good news. We live in a time where more is known about how to prevent diabetes and control it more effectively — minimizing its impact on your healthy future.

At Mayo Clinic, we want to help you use this latest medical knowledge to enjoy a healthy future — one that's either free of diabetes, or that manages diabetes effectively so that you can enjoy the retirement years you worked so hard for.

In The Essential Diabetes Book Second Edition from Mayo Clinic, you'll find the latest guidelines on diagnosis and testing, as well as valuable self-care tips. You'll learn the best ways we know to prevent or manage diabetes, and why it is so vital to reduce your risk.

  • Why is diabetes so prevalent today — have our genes changed? The answer is no, but other things have … and the good news is that you have control over those "other things."
  • Are you at risk of developing type 2 diabetes? Our eight-point checklist reveals the answer.
  • Whether your risk is high or low, knowing the seven signs and symptoms of diabetes is vital to getting appropriate treatment much more quickly.
  • Eating foods with the right balance of key ingredients is critical to your future good health. You'll find recipes — with full-color photos — that show how easy and enjoyable eating well can be.
  • People with type 2 diabetes tend to be overweight. The Essential Diabetes Book helps you identify and correct the obstacles that are holding you back from achieving a healthy weight. You'll find lots of practical tips from one of Mayo’s leading experts on weight management, Donald Hensrud, M.D.
  • For some people, lifestyle changes aren't enough and medications are necessary to maintain healthy blood sugar levels. Find comprehensive coverage on insulin therapy, various insulin options, oral medications for type 2 diabetes, oral drug combinations, new drug approaches and some experimental procedures now being researched.

Your healthy future depends on learning and using the latest medical facts to improve your health and reduce your risk of disease …

  • If you didn't develop good exercise habits early in life, a diagnosis of diabetes or pre-diabetes should put those worn-out excuses to rest. Turn your fitness dreams into reality with the dozens of simple, practical tips.
  • Diabetes can damage most every organ in your body and greatly increases your risk of heart disease, stroke, blindness, kidney failure and limb amputations. So it is critical that you learn how to prevent and manage this serious disease.

Diabetes can't be cured, but it can be prevented — if you take the right steps. And if you already have diabetes, the treatments are better than ever.

This book has the latest help Mayo Clinic can offer, and it might save your life.
