The growing epidemic of type 2 diabetes already affects over 1.3 million Australians and twice that number again is at risk of developing the disease in the next 5 to 10 years.

In this essential resource for any diabetes sufferer, Professor Merlin Thomas from the world-renowned Baker IDI Heart & Diabetes Institute offers clear, effective guidance on how to manage all aspects of the disease.
