The Smart Woman's Guide to Diabetes: Authentic Advice on Everything from Eating to Dating and Motherhood
The Smart Woman's Guide to Diabetes: Authentic Advice on Everything from Eating to Dating and Motherhood
Of the 17 million Americans with diabetes, approximately 12.6 million, or 10.8 of all women aged 20 or older, are women. And it appears that number is increasing each year. Diabetes is particularly difficult for women in large part due to the hormonal changes associated with the menstrual cycle, changes that affect blood sugar levels. As a consequence women with diabetes have higher rates of cheat pain, heart attack, coronary heart disease and stroke. And women with diabetes face special challenges.

The Smart Woman’s Guide to Diabetes provides advice, tips, and research from a diverse community of women living with diabetes. It provides practical insight and references for the optimal management of diabetes from women living with the disease as well as doctors, nurses, nutritionists, and educators. The personal anecdotes throughout the book reveal the good and the bad of living with diabetes, including the frustration, sense of shame, sense of isolation as well as the capacity for strength and the opportunity for growth.

The Smart Woman’s Guide to Diabetes lets you know that you are not alone but rather will make you feel like you are sitting in your favorite coffee shop with your friends who share the same disease.

Fonthill is a concrete castle built around an old farm house to show off Mercer tiles. It is gloriously quirky in construction. Rounded, vaulted ceilings inset with tiles appear in every room – along with the famous Mercer Tile floors throughout. There is a lot of fabulous art in this place – not just Mercer’s… but also other historic pieces. It’s almost a little upsetting to see how some of the pieces are treated (… presuming the items are the originals and not replicas placed to show how things were.)

They wouldn’t allow photography inside – which was a total bummer. However the lady giving the tour was a trip. There is so much to talk about in that place – and I overheard enough of the tour behind us to know each guide tells a different part of the story. I’d almost like to take tours with all the different guides to get the different perspectives.

Best line ever. "… and the second disease Mercer has was a SOCIAL diease… yes… and what do you think that was? Does anyone have a guess? Anyone? Anyone? Yes… that would be gon-or-eeee-ah. Yes. And the third…"
