PRLog - Aug. 2, 2012 - Numbers don’t lie! With 80 million Americans at risk of having potentially fatal diabetes – and most of them not knowing it – the important new book Don’t Feel Like a Prick? can help diagnose and manage the disease.
Don't Feel Like a Prick
Says author Lynn Santer, “Only a mere 18 percent of diagnosed diabetics are managing their condition (according to a recent study from the Institute of Health and Welfare) which is terrifying as diabetes is in the top 10 leading causes of death according to the Bureau of Statistics. Part of the reason people are living in denial is the lack of symptoms and the information out there is too complicated to understand. This book gets back to basics.”
This simply written book is designed to help newly diagnosed type 2 diabetics, pre-diabetics and their loved ones to cope. Type 2 diabetes is NOT something that only affects overweight, middle-aged and inactive people and it can be a debilitating and life-threatening disease. Ninety percent of all non-trauma limb amputations are due to diabetes! The life you save in taking the advice in this book might well be your own! At turns funny, poignant, unapologetically confrontational and definitely not politically correct, the pages contain personal stories, easy-to-follow tips and tricks, very cheeky cartoons, contact information and celebrity content. There has never been a book on diabetes like this one because the medical profession dare not write it!
