An estimated 41 million Americans have the condition identified since 2002 as prediabetes, which, if left unchecked, inevitably will lead to full-blown diabetes. From one of the world's leading diabetes "patient-experts," this first-ever practical guide offers fifty essential, informative ideas and simple steps to help this vast and rapidly growing constituency manage their condition and thereby reduce their chances of developing full-blown diabetes. Prediabetes clearly explains what readers can do today, no matter what their age, and whether or not they have a family history of diabetes, a severe weight problem, or are members of an ethnic group at high risk -- including Hispanics, Native Americans, African Americans, and Pacific Islanders. Helpful drawings and graphs are featured throughout in this new, revised edition.
