“The Greeks and Romans knew about diabetes. Fortunately, the way they tested for the condition–by tasting the urine–has gone by the wayside.” Diabetes for Dummies has the friendly, quirky style you expect from all the For Dummies books, but this is no skim-the-surface Diabetes 101. Rubin has packed this book with useful information, peppered with warm advice for enjoying your life while living with diabetes. One of his points is that although you’d rather not have this disease, you’re lucky to have it now instead of a few decades ago, because today you can manage diabetes and live a productive, quality-filled life.

The book is divided into sections on “Dealing with the Onset of Diabetes,” “How Diabetes Affects Your Body,” “Managing Diabetes: The ‘Thriving with Diabetes’ Lifestyle Plan,” and “Special Considerations for Living with Diabetes.” Each chapter is packed with facts and strategies on topics such as monitoring, battling complications, medications, diet, and exercise. If you skim, it’s an introduction to diabetes; if you read it carefully, it’s a textbook. Web surfers will appreciate the “Dr. W.W. Web” appendix, where Rubin lists many useful diabetes Web sites. (If you’d rather click than type, you can visit Rubin’s Web site, where he offers links to all the diabetes sites.) Also included is a mini-cookbook of multiethnic recipes from noted restaurants, mostly in San Francisco (with the restaurant address, in case you want to order instead of cook). –Joan Price

 

Pregnancy For Dummies

Now updated–our bestselling guide to a safe and healthy pregnancy

With robust sales and its own four-part cable TV series, Pregnancy For Dummies has been a perennial favorite, giving parents-to-be authoritative, friendly, up-to-date advice on every aspect of pregnancy and childbirth. This new edition offers all of the latest information expecting parents want to know, including expanded coverage on the health and well-being of both mother and child. It takes readers through the first, second, and third trimesters, providing new and updated coverage of prenatal genetic screening and diagnosis, amniocentesis, new high-tech ultrasounds, and the revised FDA/USDA food pyramid. It also discusses the recent celebrity trend of “on-demand” cesarean sections, multiple births, what to expect in labor and delivery, postpartum care, choosing bottle or breastfeeding, preparing a home (and siblings) for a new baby, caring for preemies, and the mother’s mental as well as physical health.

“A thorough, accurate, and highly informative guide.”
Los Angeles TimesThis book’s title sure sounds a little scary, but as its often-hilarious testimonials from first-time parents show, expectant parents frequently feel really stupid. Like the vast majority of For Dummies books, this one is supremely organized and indexed to help you find the answer to most any question, especially the embarrassing ones you may be reluctant to ask your doctor (“Is it okay to have sex in the last trimester?” “How long does it take the ugly conehead effect to go away after birth?”) and the more serious ones (“Can I breast-feed while I’m on the Pill?”).

Unlike many pregnancy books, this one has plenty of helpful information for the mother’s partner, including ways to deal with vicious mood swings, helpful tips for preparing for childbirth class, and seven tricks for easing her labor pain–even if she’s threatening that you’ll never have sex again. Besides chapter after chapter of information about pregnancy’s physical aspects and how to stay comfortable during the next 40 weeks, there’s also plenty of advice on emotional issues–from learning how to say “hands off!” to the pesky people who want to rub your belly to coping with postpartum blues. Some readers may be offended by the book’s slightly warped sense of humor (example: “breast engorgement really sucks”), but the authors never treat serious topics in an off-base way. The book’s definitely geared toward first-time parents, but for moms and dads confused by the many new medical tests and modern options (such as the doula [pregnancy coach] dilemma or decision to freeze the baby’s umbilical cord or not), there’s a fine education to be had between this book’s covers.Now updated–our bestselling guide to a safe and healthy pregnancy

The diabetes diet is healthy for all of us, and if we can make it taste good, we all benefit.

That’s where this book shines. The 112 recipes are as creative and tasty as they are healthy, yet most take a half hour or less of preparation (plus cooking time). Recipes include Soy Waffles, Crispy Corn French Toast, Portobello Paté, Carrot Soup with Leek and Blood Orange, Mango Tortilla Salad, Oriental Beef and Noodle Salad, and Spaghetti Squash with Fresh Basil, plus a variety of fish, meat, and poultry entrées.

Diabetes Cookbook for Dummies is more than a compilation of recipes. The book also gives guidelines for “what, when, and how much” to eat, including tips for visualizing portions (an ounce of meat is the size of a matchbox; an ounce of cheese is the size of a domino; a medium potato is the size of a computer mouse). You’ll get shopping and cooking tips and illustrated food-preparation steps to help novice cooks.

Like the whole For Dummies line, the style is simple, friendly, clever, and sometimes laugh-out-loud funny, such as, “Don’t go to a paint store and expect to get thinner there.” — Joan PriceThe fun and easy way to eat a well-balanced diabetic diet
