Every day nearly 300 adults and even children develop type 2 diabetes. And for every person diagnosed with diabetes there's someone else with undiagnosed diabetes. The good news is that these days we know a lot more about managing diabetes or reducing your risk of developing it. Rather than blind you with science or swamp you with facts, THE LOW GI DIET: DIABETES HANDBOOK cuts through the confusion of conflicting advice and sets out clearly and simply what you need to eat and do to help you: reduce your body fat; improve your insulin sensitivity; improve your cardiovascular health; keep your blood glucose levels near the normal range. This book is a practical guide to help you manage your diabetes or pre-diabetes with diet and lifestyle. The authors show what you can do for yourself - and why.
