Gretchen Becker was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in 1996; over the past twenty years, she has educated herself on every aspect of the condition by reading medical texts and journals, talking with doctors, and corresponding with others who have type 2, sharing everything she’s learned in a comprehensive, easy-to-use guide.

In clear and accessible language, Becker covers a wide range of practical, medical, and lifestyle issues, including:
