• Fewer highs • Fewer lows • Better health

Professor Merlin Thomas and The Baker IDI Heart and Diabetes Institute

The growing epidemic of Type 2 diabetes already affects over 1.3 million Australians and twice that number again is at risk of developing the disease in the next 5 to 10 years. Worldwide, the World Health Organization estimates that 346 million people have diabetes, a figure that is expected to double by 2030 without intervention. In this essential resource for any diabetes sufferer, Professor Merlin Thomas from the world-renowned Baker IDI Heart & Diabetes Institute offers clear, effective guidance on how to manage all aspects of the disease.

The book examines what diabetes is and how it comes about. It describes the many practical changes you can make to your diet, while also looking at physical activity and the different ways exercise can be used to maintain and improve your health. The book also explores the medical aspects of diabetes care, including the best ways to achieve control of your waistline, blood glucose, blood pressure and cholesterol levels, and how to avoid major complications. Individual chapters look at the effects of diabetes on the heart, vision, feet, kidneys, bladder, mind, mood, sleep and sex — all critically important areas for sufferers wanting to maintain optimum health.

Australian Nurses Journal, April 2013

 

“Written by Professor Merlin Thomas from the world-renowned Baker IDI Heart and Diabetes Institute, Understanding Type 2 Diabetes offers clear and effective guidance on how to manage all aspects of diabetes”.

Diabetes Matters, April 2013

 

“Practical everyday advice for Australians caught up in a disease epidemic. Professor Merlin Thomas and Melbourne research facility Baker IDI Heart and Diabetes Institute have teamed up to create a guide to Type 2 diabetes. The book is primarily for those who have already been diagnosed and is likely to become a well –worn reference guide as they come to terms with their diagnosis, develop a management plan and strive to improve their health and limit the damage to their body. It is highly readable and balances the scary stuff with empathy and positive comments while still keeping things simple. This book would be an ideal reference book on a GP’s bookshelf, but you will have to keep an eye on it, as I think it is going to be a popular one for patients and medicos alike”
