Diabetes: Self-Help Book,
This review is from: The Diabetes Manifesto: Take Charge of Your Life (Paperback)
The Diabetes Manifesto is a handbook on how to live and mitigate the effects of the disease. A chronic disease which has no cure and no one truly know when or who it will strike. If diagnoses with diabetes, or have been informed that you are borderline, I would strongly recommend this book. Reading this self-help book will not only educate you on the disease but on how to keep your quality of life through education.
As with any chronic disease you must be active and knowledgeable in the maintenance of your good health. The methods of seeking knowledge on your symptoms and treatments available are shared in this book. Among them chiefly is the prudent use of the Internet. With this outline you will take control of your life and there is no information within these pages that can cause you harm. Any changes you may make should be discussed with your physician before you implement them.
But mainly you will chronicle the daily progression of your life with diabetes. Armed with this information of your daily monitoring and information garnered from various sources you will be able to ask relevant questions and effectively discuses treatment with your doctors. This chronic disease has a stigma attached to it that it does not deserve. For it can be contracted by anyone regardless of their lifestyle or physical condition.
Most important this book helps you to live your life, manage your diabetes and not let this aliment impact your productivity or self-reliance. Though one must be cognitive of the fact that you must manage diabetes. This is a book you will read more than once.
