A First Book for Understanding Diabetes - COMPANION to the 11th edition of "understanding diabetes"
on May 20, 2010
This book is a very condensed version of the actual "Understanding Diabetes" 11th Edition. It is little more than a detailed outline. The section on counting carbohydrates is useless. Unless you are well-versed in diabetes (i.e. diabetic educator or endocrinologist), you are wasting your money getting this book. As stated in the title, it is only a "COMPANION to the 11th Edition of 'Understanding Diabetes.' " I would not waste my money on this book, unless I was using the pages as slides for a presentation on the actual book and already had the 11th Edition book memorized.
