Review:

It's refreshing to see a book that focuses on motivating, educating, and helping women to take charge of their health and diabetes. The authors offer a wonderfully personal approach for any woman with diabetes, and Every Woman's Guide to Diabetes is an empowering tool to help her gain control, become diabetes-savvy, and form a plan of action. As an endocrinologist sensitive to issues of women with type 1 and type 2 diabetes, I strongly recommend this book-- it's a must-read. (Sandra T. Foo, M.D. Diabetes Prevention Program Outcomes Study, St. Luke's-Roosevelt Medical Center)

A sympathetic portrait of the myriad medical and psychosocial considerations that must be navigated for women to maintain healthy glucose levels and optimal quality of life. Focusing primarily on Type 2 diabetes, [the authors] describe risk factors and gender and ethnic-specific conditions that influence progression of the disease. Because much damage (nerve, cardiovascular, kidney, retinal and dental) is done before symptoms appear, the authors stress early diagnosis and intensive management of glucose levels. Testing and monitoring methods, types of insulin and other medications, dietary strategies and daily schedules are presented clearly with charts, tables and lists for easy access. There are helpful sections on the effects of stress, illness, hormonal fluctuations and aging, as well as a discussion of gestational diabetes as it affects women with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. (Publishers Weekly 2006-10-30)

Although there are many fine books about diabetes from the American Diabetes Association, this work is valuable for its focus on women. (Barbara M. Bibel Library Journal 2006-11-15)

Women have unique issues with diabetes. If you're a woman, are you at risk? Do you know how to find out or what to do about it? Here is thorough, concise information on who's at risk, how to avoid or prolong avoidance of diabetes and, if diagnosed, how to manage it. Easy to read and informative, Every Woman's Guide to Diabetes is a must-read for women seeking to avoid or deal with diabetes-- and isn't that all of us? (Donna Zimmer, Consumer Connection)
