A Cutting-edge, Comprehensive Program for Prevention and TreatmentBook - 2005
The definitive guide to identifying and treating diabetes and prediabetes by a world-renowned pioneer in diabetes treatment and management. Diabetes has struck Americans in epidemic proportions, and its complications-which are entirely preventable-can be devastating. As a result, the majority of the 60 million Americans afflicted with prediabetes or diabetes are confused, frightened, and are often receiving sub-par treatment from well-intentioned doctors who simply don't have the experience with the disease to give patients the care they desperately need. This book, written by a world-renowned pioneer in diabetes treatment who has already written the textbook on the topic for physicians, is a cutting-edge, comprehensive program to reverse prediabetes and to treat both types of diabetes, including: what foods to eat/avoid, which medications help/hurt, and how to get the best treatment from your doctor. As one of the top twenty physicians treating diabetes in America, director of the USC Clinical Diabetes Programs, and the physician currently in charge of developing the nation's largest outreach program for community-based diabetes prevention and treatment, Dr. Anne Peters treats a spectrum of patients, from Hollywood producers, writers, and stars who frequent her clinic in Beverly Hills to the poor who populate her free clinic in East L.A. Authoritative and reassuring, Dr. Peters' Prescription will arm readers and their physicians with the latest findings on the diabetes epidemic, helping them to confront the disease effectively and exponentially increase their quality of life.
