The Sisterhood of Diabetes engages the reader with 38 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, and 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 of diabetes, and how to live a rich life in the midst of our challenges. Judith Jones-Ambrosini has lived under the influence of Type 1 diabetes for over fifty years. She knows the importance of exercise, sports and leading an active life as a major component of excellent diabetes care. There are currently over 26 million men, women and children with diabetes in the USA, and 286 million cases worldwide. This book sheds bright light on what can sometimes be a devastating prognosis, by telling true and encouraging stories of successful individuals. Living with diabetes is a challenge, but as Judith so beautifully captures here it doesn't have to keep you from achieving your dreams. Each of these uplifting stories shares a common "golden thread" - the importance of maintaining a positive attitude and the will to dream big. Whether they have diabetes or not, readers of this inspirational book will be encouraged to find their own golden thread. - Chris Dudley, National Basketball Association player for 16 years; founder: Chris Dudley Foundation for youth with diabetes; Type 1 diabetes since 1981 I have known of Judith's commitment to movement and sport for years, and how it has helped her manage her diabetes. Her clear, compelling voice brings us stories of women who discovered that moving is one of our greatest salvations, and tools, to live proudly, strongly and joyfully with diabetes. - Riva Greenberg, author, Diabetes Do's & How-To's and 50 Diabetes Myths...50 Diabetes Truths...; and columnist, The

Dr. Khorram then discusses the stages of diabetic retinopathy, as well as other diabetic related problems such as cataracts, fluctuating vision and double vision. Dr. Khorram goes on to explain the types of doctors that provide diabetic eye care, the details of the eye exam, and an overview of special eye tests that you may need to evaluate diabetic eye disease. A separate section discussed treatment of diabetic eye disease, including laser treatment, surgery, and the use of revolutionary drugs such as Avastin which can stabilize and even reverse vision loss. Finally, Dr. Khorram touches on issues related to control of diabetes and other health problems that can play a major role in helping you prevent blindness. "An outstanding book for people with diabetes and their families." John T. Thompson, MD, President, American Society of Retina Specialists "The depth and clarity of Dr. Khorram's book are amazing and it is a godsend to people with diabetes."

I was blown away by all the details provided and with photos to illustrate the information. The book is a complete guide on the progression of the effects of diabetes on the eyes, and covers the latest developments of treatment alternatives. A good reference book to understand what your doctor is trying to convey. Very well written in a casual and personal style. P.S. Armed with information from Dr. Khorram's book I was able to convince my husband to drastically modify his diet to control his diabetes. We just saw our physician. Not only has my husband lost 20 pounds in three months, but his AC1 is 5.6! His cholesterol is also normal and his medications have been cut way back. Now he has the motivation to monitor himself and we are gradually adding healthy carbs." smithwic, Amazon review of the first edition
