About the Author

Sue Marshall was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at the age of five. Now 44, she has lived with the condition for nearly 40 years. She had a career in journalism spanning nearly 20 years, all the while living with diabetes, before setting up Desang, a company providing diabetes healthcare information and products. Sue is an expert on the range and purpose of current diabetes management equipment, which she says has changed a lot in the last four decades since I was diagnosed. The improved equipment goes hand-in-hand with improved medications and medical knowledge, much of which is connected with the role of diet and behaviour in diabetes management. Sue lives in East Sussex and can be contacted through her website


'The ten chapters are easily digestible and include a very useful "summing up" summary section at the end of each one...this is a comprehensive guide to the condition.' Shae Courtney, inSITE Magazine Clear, easy to understand information Covers everything you want to know about diabetes - what it is, who gets it, how to treat it and how to improve your eating habits to control it. It explains both type 1 and type 2 diabetes in clear, easy to understand terms and stays away from the jargon. I find blood sugar and insulin, whether it's high or low, whether to have an injection or eat a biscuit, confusing and this books lays out the information in a clear way that takes away the confusion.
