Around 1.4 million people in the UK today have diabetes, and at least a million more may have diabetes and not know it. According to the World Health Organisation the number of diabetes sufferers worldwide is set to double in the next 25 years. It's serious and progressive and there is no known cure. However, life with diabetes can be very fulfilling. Just look at sports stars like Steve Redgave, winner of 5 Olympic gold medals. Written in association with Diabetes UK, this comprehensive guide answers all the key questions, from how to spot the symptoms, who is most at risk, what treatments are available and how diabetes will affect you diet and lifestyle. Dr Hillson tackles the common anxieties and provides invaluable information for all those with diabetes - whether newly diagnosed or longstanding - their families and friends.

Nearly 24 million Americans—roughly one of every 13 people—have diabetes, a disease marked by high levels of sugar in the blood. More than 90% of them have type 2 diabetes, which occurs when the body becomes resistant to the effects of insulin (the hormone that enables cells to draw sugar from the blood for energy) and not enough insulin is produced to overcome the resistance. In fact, the number of adults diagnosed with type 2 diabetes has more than quadrupled since the early 1980s.

Diabetes: Oxidative Stress and Dietary Antioxidants bridges the trans-disciplinary divide among diabetologists, endocrinologists, and nutritionists in understanding and treating diabetes. The book covers, in a single volume, the science of oxidative stress in diabetes and the potentially therapeutic use of natural antioxidants in the diet or food matrix. The processes within the science of oxidative stress are described in concert with other processes such as apoptosis, cell signaling, receptor-mediated responses and more. This approach recognizes that diseases areusually multifactorial and that oxidative stress is a single component of this. Pharmacological treatments for diabetes are commonly marked by unwanted side effects, leading to treatment efforts using naturally occurring substances. But a plant-based approach alone is not sufficient; understanding the processes inherent in the oxidative stress of diabetes is vital for clinical workers, dietitians, and nutritionists. This translational work provides that understanding. The book begins by covering the basic biology of oxidative stress from molecular biology to imaging in relation to diabetes. There are chapters on neuropathy, nephropathy, atherosclerosis, cardiomyopathy, and retinopathy. The book then moves on to antioxidants in foods, including plants, components of the diet, and their relevance to diabetes. Nutritionists will use the information related to mitochondrial oxidative stress in one disease and propose new diet-related strategies to prevent such conditions arising in another unrelated disease. Dietitians will prescribe new foods or diets containing antioxidants for conditions that are refractory by conventional pharmacological treatments. Dietitians, after learning about the basic biology of oxidative stress, will be able to suggest new treatments to their multidisciplinary teams. Nutritionists and dietitians will learn about cell signaling andwill be able to suggest preventive or therapeutic strategies with antioxidant-rich foods to reduce damage done by diseases involving abnormal cell signaling.

Diabetes - General Practice: The Integrative Approach . Diabetes mellitus is classified into several types: type 1 diabetes , LADA (latent autoimmune diabetes of adulthood) or type 1.5 diabetes', type 2 diabetes and gestational diabetes . The role of the general practitioner is in identifying those at risk of diabetes and advising on preventive and early intervention strategies when impaired glucose tolerance, prediabetes or diabetes is identified. Once a diagnosis of diabetes is established, management of diabetes is aimed at secondary prevention strategies through control of blood sugar levels, correction of micronutrient deficiencies and active risk factor management. The long-term effects of diabetes are largely due to its effect on blood vessels leading to both micro and macro vascular disease.
