Gr 8 Up-Providing primary-source excerpts from reliable sources such as the National Diabetes Education Program, KidsHealth, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, this title offers useful facts and statistics about diabetes. Information is presented in five major parts: "Understanding Diabetes," "Medical Management of Diabetes," "Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Weight Management," "Mental Health and Lifestyle Issues," and "The Physical Complications of Diabetes." The tone of the writing is not uniform throughout, as some of the short chapters are reprinted articles that can be quite technical, but all together, this is a solid overview of the condition that will be helpful to report writers and to those looking for personal health tips. A plus is the website information for diabetes-friendly recipes and cookbooks.--Joanna K. Fabicon, Los Angeles Public Libraryα(c) Copyright 2011.
