Diabetes is a common life-long health condition. There are 3.3 million people diagnosed with diabetes in the UK and an estimated 590,000 people who have the condition, but don’t know it. Diabetes is one of the most common chronic disorders. The incidence of the disorder is being reported from all parts of the country and all segments of society. Diabetes prevention is as basic as eating more healthfully, becoming more physically active and losing a few extra pounds — and it’s never too late to start. Making a few simple changes in your lifestyle now may help you avoid the serious health complications of diabetes down the road, such as nerve, kidney and heart damage. This book is for all of us who wish to know about diabetes whether or not we are suffering from it.
