Diabetes for Students, Diabetics & the Curious
By far the most common health condition I have come across in my role as a nurse is diabetes. The International Diabetes Federation states that approximately 360 million people had diabetes in 2011 and that over 500 million will have the disease by 2030. With almost one in ten of the world's population either living with or likely to develop diabetes, understanding its cause and pathophysiology is essential if we are to understand how to effectively treat the disease. This book is a learning aid to help understand all types of diabetes, its causes, symptoms and treatments. Learn not only what happens with diabetes but why it happens by learning what causes the short and long term complications of diabetes. By reading this book you will be equipped with the information needed to reduce type II diabetic risk and co morbidities of type I and type II. If you are in the healthcare profession reading this book will help you to understand and explain to your patients how changing their life style can help control their diabetes. "Having diabetes does not have to lead to a diminished quality of life!" This book covers all the major elements of diabetes but without the need to read a comprehensive analysis on the subject. It's an excellent learning tool for students who have a keen interest in studying its causes and its remedies, and for diabetics who are curious in understanding the treatments for the disease. By understanding the basics of diabetes you will be well equipped to provide health care promotion to your patients or self. I have tried to write this book in a way that lay people, students and healthcare professionals can all understand. Images are provided throughout the book to help make the text easier to understand.
