According to the American Diabetes Association, over 8 percent of the U.S. population is living with diabetes, and that number is growing. Diabetes is a chronic disorder characterized by high levels of blood sugar. Its complications include heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, blindness, kidney disease, nervous system disease, and limb amputation. Poorly controlled blood glucose levels can also result in acute medical emergencies or even death.

Diabetes Sourcebook, 6th Edition, provides basic consumer information about the different types of diabetes and their diagnosis, management, and treatment. It also offers guidelines for recognizing and treating diabetic emergencies.
