Description

The book received the Favorably Reviewed designation from the American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE). The designation of Favorably Reviewed by AADE assures health professionals that the educational content of the book has been carefully evaluated by representatives of a variety of health professions based on set guidelines.
More than 4 million African Americans have diabetes; thousands more have pre-diabetes or are at risk for the condition. But in 21 years as a registered dietitian and certified diabetes educator, Constance Brown-Riggs found few books that even vaguely addressed the unique health concerns of this population.
This comprehensive guide includes:
The latest medical treatments for diabetes-medications, insulin therapies, blood glucose monitors, plus the pros and cons of supplements, herbs, and alternative diets.
What you can't eat--and what you can.
Dozens of mouthwatering Caribbean and soul food recipes, with a two-week menu plan.
