Women and diabetes! A huge market and a huge need. The Sisterhood of Diabetes engages the reader with 44 true-life stories of women with diabetes-the challenges they faced and the adventures they took. These accomplished women, of all ages and from around the world, are athletes, scholars, champions in many ways who will motivate and inspire others, whether diabetic or not, in redefining abilities and venturing beyond self-imposed limits. The message here is to live your dreams with diabetes, or any other challenges, with a positive attitude and inspired determination. While many books offer the "do's and don'ts” of diabetes care, this book bypasses the humdrum and the confusing fuselage of medical terminology and treatment to bring the reader face to face with the real struggles and joys of living with diabetes.
