Description

Rather than providing lengthy explanations on nutrition and meal planning, this book cuts right to the point, directly answering the 21 most common questions and issues that people with diabetes ask about their nutrition. Most questions are answered in a single page, cutting through the confusion and getting right to business. Written by two nutrition professionals on staff at the American Diabetes Association, readers will know that they are getting the official word from the leading diabetes source that is backed by rigorous scientific evidence. Even more, all of this information will be at their fingertips at an affordable price in a convenient format.Foot problems are a key concern for people with diabetes. Common foot issues usually stem from loss of sensation and can lead to ulcers and sometimes amputation. There are ways to avoid these issues and care for feet that are at risk, but such information is either spread all over larger self-care encyclopedias or hidden on websites across the Internet. 21 Things You Need to Know about Diabetes and Your Feet fills this gap by offering people with diabetes the key tips and strategies in diabetic foot care in one concise volume backed by the medical guidelines of the American Diabetes Association. This book covers the causes of foot problems, methods of dealing with these problems, and ways to prevent them. Dr. Neil Scheffler has written this book with the person with diabetes in mind. In clear, concise language intended for people who are not health care professionals, Dr. Scheffler's writing makes learning about foot care quick, easy, and painless. Intimidating medical jargon is broken down into plain language for the layperson, and he provides a discussion of what each and every medical professional involved in the treatment of feet specializes in.According to recent statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 34.9 percent or 78.6 million U.S. adults are obese. In addition, about 17 percent, or 12.7 million U.S. children, between the ages of 2 to 19, are obese. In addition, obesity-related conditions, such as heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, and even some cancers are increasing. These alarming statistics coupled with the exponential growth of medical costs to treat obesity, have created an urgency to find effective treatment options. Weight-loss (bariatric) surgery has become a preferred, and cost-effective, treatment option.
