Of the 17 million Americans who have diabetes, approximately 9.3 of that number are women. And it appears that number of women with diabetes is increasing each year. Diabetes is particularly difficult for women in large part due to the hormonal changes associated with the menstrual cycle, changes that affect blood sugar levels.

This redesigned and expanded third edition of Diabetes Snacks, Treats, and Easy Eats for Kids offers even more simple, delicious recipes for healthy, well-balanced diets. Since the book was first published in 2006, the prevalence of diabetes in children has continued to increase. Children under age 19 have seen a 21 percent increase in Type 1 cases, and children ages 10–19 have seen a 30 percent increase in cases of Type 2—a disease that used to be considered an adult condition. But kids will be kids, and when they come home from school, they want a snack that's simple, satisfying, and occasionally sweet. When it comes to dinner, they usually don't have the time or the taste for fancy meals. With this in mind, author Barbara Grunes has developed more than 150 recipes for snacks and meals that kids really like and that stay within diabetic guidelines. Grunes's goal is to help all kids enjoy food that is good for them—even if they have diabetes. Each recipe includes the nutritional information readers need, whether they count carbs or use the exchange method. With recipes like Pizza Puffs, Spud Pancakes, Chicken Fajitas, Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes, and Fruit Turnovers, this book proves that everyone can enjoy familiar and delicious food together. After all, it's not about "good," "bad," or "forbidden" foods—it's about readers feeding their families sensibly.

The Diabetes Book was previously published as "Living on a Tightrope: Coping with Diabetes" ******************************************************************************************************************* Hall of Famer Ron Santo was a diabetic who starred for the Chicago Cubs in the 1960's. These were the dark ages of diabetes care, and Santo struggled with his disease in secret. His amazing story illustrates the unique problems of living with diabetes and helps show the incredible progress that's been made in treating it since then. One thing hasn't changed: old wives tales and incorrect common "knowledge" are so rampant that millions of people believe things that simply aren't true. This includes many diabetics and it's even worse among the general public. This can result in genuine fear, a naive disregard for its seriousness, or anything in between. The Diabetes Book is easily readable and uses compelling real-life stories to explain practical realities to diabetics, those who love them, and those who worry about it. It inspires everyone - diabetic or not - to pursue strong, healthy lives."
