Author Elizabeth Hiser offers a consumer guide to type 2 diabetes, the more common and less well-understood form of the disease. Of the estimated 16 million cases of diabetes in the United States today, nine out of ten are the ‘other’ diabetes, type 2, the kind related to too much rather than too little insulin. The Other Diabetes reviews how genetics, excess calories, and a sedentary lifestyle contribute to type 2 diabetes; how insulin resistance is the hallmark of the disease; how people can lose weight and keep it off; how exercise can work for anyone; and how to avoid the most lethal complication of type 2 diabetes – early death from heart disease. ‘The Other Diabetes’ is also a comprehensive nutrition handbook.
