The essential guide to living well with diabetes, written by an expert who has lived with the condition for more than four decades.

HOW TO LIVE WITH DIABETES is a comprehensive self-help guide for people with the condition, either newly diagnosed or for those who've been living with diabetes for some time. This book has been written to help you understand your diagnosis so you can manage and live well with your diabetes for as long as possible.

Every aspect of your life with diabetes is covered - from diet, sex and exercise to mood changes, managing blood glucose levels and physical complications arising from the condition. Dr Val Wilson draws on four decades of personal and professional experience to help readers deal with their diagnosis, consider how it will affect their relationships and lifestyle, with advice on DAFNE for Type 1 diabetics and ways that Type 2 diabetes can eventually be reversed. Real-life case studies show other people's experiences of diabetes-related issues that you might also be dealing with.

Around 700 people each day are diagnosed with diabetes - that's the equivalent of one every two minutes. In January 2016, Diabetes UK announced that four million people in Britain now have diabetes of one form or another. This is the only book they need to help self-manage the condition.
