1st Edition    Paperback      ISBN: 1580405398

Each month the editors of Diabetes Forecast publish answers to relevant questions submitted by readers. The answers, written by physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, dietitians, diabetes educators, and other experts in the diabetes research and clinical communities, help people with diabetes and their loved ones live healthier lives with this chronic disease. Unlike most self-care titles for people with diabetes, the unique format of Ask the Experts creates an open forum for people to ask the specific and individualized questions that normally don't get answered. Questions like "Can I have sex while wearing an insulin pump?," "Will steroids affect my blood glucose levels?," "Can my blood glucose levels be too good?," "Should I start following a gluten-free diet?," and "Can I switch to insulin to lose weight?" finally get the professional, evidence-based answers they deserve. Like a personal consultation with the world's best diabetes healthcare team, Ask the Experts gives credible advice to the real-world questions people with diabetes actually have.

Bittersweet: Diabetes, Insulin, and the Transformation of Illness
Bittersweet
Diabetes, Insulin, and the Transformation of Illness
Paperback      ISBN: 1469623730

One of medicine's most remarkable therapeutic triumphs was the discovery of insulin in 1921. The drug produced astonishing results, rescuing children and adults from the deadly grip of diabetes. But as Chris Feudtner demonstrates, the subsequent transformation of the disease from a fatal condition into a chronic illness is a story of success tinged with irony, a revealing saga that illuminates the complex human consequences of medical intervention.

Bittersweet chronicles this history of diabetes through the compelling perspectives of people who lived with this disease. Drawing on a remarkable body of letters exchanged between patients or their parents and Dr. Elliot P. Joslin and the staff of physicians at his famed Boston clinic, Feudtner examines the experience of living with diabetes across the twentieth century, highlighting changes in treatment and their profound effects on patients' lives. Although focused on juvenile-onset, or Type 1, diabetes, the themes explored in Bittersweet have implications for our understanding of adult-onset, or Type 2, diabetes, as well as a host of other diseases that, thanks to drugs or medical advances, are being transformed from acute to chronic conditions. Indeed, the tale of diabetes in the post-insulin era provides an ideal opportunity for exploring the larger questions of how medicine changes our lives.
