Library Journal Review

Diabetics are subject to numerous health complications, many of which are not listed in the diabetes books currently available; Touchette, a science writer who is an adviser to publications for the American Diabetes Association, covers these in cogent, coherent style. Her first section consists of a series of flow charts designed to allow the reader to decide what needs to be done about particular symptoms. Further information on conditions that cause diabetic complications can be found in the second section, which covers health risks and symptoms, treatments, and prevention. Topics include hypo- and hyperglycemia, medication, circulation, neuropathy, and kidney, skin, vision, and gastrointestinal problems, among others. Special sections on problems particular to men, women, and children are included. This outstanding volume distinguishes itself from other diabetes manuals by its comprehensiveness and should be included in every health collection.√ĄJanet M. Schneider, James A.
