Diabetes has reached epidemic levels in the US and many other countries. This disease can shorten lifespan and create many health complications, but the blood sugar disturbance at its root can be managed.
This 8-page long downloadable guide offers details on how to take control of type 2 diabetes, the most common variety. The emphasis is on non-drug approaches, including exercise, dietary supplements and specific foods that can minimize blood sugar “excursions.”
There are also discussions of the pros and cons of the drugs most often used to treat type 2 diabetes, and a list of medications that can make it more difficult to control blood sugar. Stress, social support and online resources are also addressed.
