Managing diabetes depends on achieving life balance, not just metabolic control. This is the first book devoted exclusively to complementary therapies and diabetes, and it has several key features:
- It is an informative evidence-based text that will help health professionals understand complementary therapies commonly used by people with diabetes, their potential benefits, possible adverse events and how these could be minimised or prevented.
- It describes clinical practice guidelines for the safe combination of complementary and conventional therapies in diabetes management.
- It suggests appropriate advice to give people with diabetes and vascular disease about complementary therapies.
Written by experts in the various fields, this book makes important reading for all health professionals managing patients with diabetes and associated vascular disease, including nurses, doctors, dietitians and podiatrists.
