Default Diabetes, a Patient's Story

Hi all

Just thought I'd let all know that my book is now available at amazon.com.
Or you can paypal me $34 at [email protected] and I'll send you a pdf.

Senior executives at Novo have bought hundreds of this book and describe it as "moving", "very personal" and "unique".

A local Diabetes professor endorses the book like this:
"The book contains great practical advice and sound suggestions about living with a chronic disease like diabetes".

Back cover:
"This book describes the life of a diabetic over the cause of 17 years. It describes how his disease was discovered, and it deals with the thoughts and feelings that come from being diagnosed with a chronic disease. The reactions of the people surrounding the patient are described, and the new diabetic lifestyle, which involves a continuous balancing act of food, insulin and exercise, is described with empathy and humor.

The author has many tips for diabetics, including selecting the proper type of insulin to use, different blood sugar measuring devices, and the use of food and exercise to help control the disease. There’s a chapter showing how a diabetic easily can lose weight. He urges all diabetics to take responsibility for their disease, and tells you how to do that.

This book is also useful reading for people that are not diabetics, especially if they have a diabetic colleague, friend or family member. It describes how the diabetic can feel, and what close friends and family should know and do, and especially what they shouldn’t do in their efforts to support the patient."

Thanks everybody for your help in making this happen.
