Around 573 million people worldwide are living with diabetes, so the need for information about this disease is great. This resource provides information for consumers, patients, and their families, offering data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH), along with information about organizations and resource centers that provide support. The first section offers 268 pages of statistics, facts, maps, charts, and recipes from the CDC and NIH, including two detailed reports on types of diabetes, management of the disease, related conditions, and complications. Section two is a directory of agencies, organizations, associations, libraries, and research and resource centers, offering their name, address, phone number, email address, and website and a brief statement of the organization’s function and purpose. This section also includes listings of print, digital, and web resources. Section three discuses diabetes risk factors and complications, such as cardiovascular and eye diseases and neuropathy. The book also covers diabetes in pregnancy and day-to-day challenges that those with diabetes may face.
VERDICT This is a useful resource, but everything in it is also available at no cost on U.S. government websites.
