Diabetes Essentials

Tips and Recipes to Manage Type 2 Diabetes

Quick and easy top-10 lists on important type 2 diabetes topics for the newly diagnosed. This new guide from Karen Graham is a shorter companion book to Complete Diabetes Guide and Diabetes Meals for Good Health Cookbook. Diabetes Essentials includes easy diabetes tips covering 72 subjects, including medications, nutrition, gut bacteria, exercise, recipes and more.

For each of the 72 subjects, Registered Dietitian and Certified Diabetes Educator Karen Graham along with MD and Endocrinologist Mansur Shomali offer the top-10 tips for that subject (with 720 total tips across all subjects), including Answers to Your First Diabetes Questions, Prediabetes, Diabetes First Ten Days, Diabetes Medical Terms, Lab Tests, Testing Your Sugar Level at Home, Low Blood Sugar Episodes, and Steps to Reduce a High Morning Blood Sugar. Meant as a diabetes primer for the newly diagnosed, this book contains essential advice meant to supplement the other two highly respected books in the series.

It will arm those who might be confused about their diagnosis with a path forward, with information about their condition and about managing it using nutrition, exercise, medication and other strategies. Karen Graham’s diabetes books are market-leading and have sold over a quarter million copies across all titles and editions.

She has an easy-to-understand approach and has devoted her career to helping those with diabetes improve their lives. Her collaboration with Dr. Shomali on this new Health and Wellness Series brings his leading-edge expertise as a physician and endocrinologist, professor of medicine and researcher.
