Thank you for your comments related to my diabetes book. Unfortunately technical books, like textbooks, are expensive because the market is small. Maybe your public library could purchase one. Amazon.com carries our book, search for Pasupuleti, V, the first author. Sometimes good deals are available though them.
Please send me your questions as comments and I will try to answer them specificallly.
In a few words, if you are at risk for diabetes (strong family history, history of gestational diabetes, have a borderline blood glucose) these are things you can do. Most important, try to get down to your desirable weight (a BMI under 25- many websites help you calculate your BMI). Walk 30-45 minutes six days a week. Cut down on your intake of fat, especially red meat, all beef, pork and dark meat. Increase your intake of fiber from whole grain breads, cereals and beans. Take the supplements (magnesium, chromium, vanadium) described in my earlier Post.
Thanks and good luck.
