The focus of this revised book is to strengthen the diabetes nutritional management principles that empower dietitians to expand their roles, and to update research and techniques that describe state-of-the-art diabetes management. Pertinent information resulting from advanced glucose monitoring practices/techniques and new food ingredients such as artificial sweeteners and fat replacers are discussed. The Handbook of Diabetes Medical Nutrition Therapy offers health care providers a complete guide to diabetes management. It is also refreshingly specific, making it a handy tool for dietitions, dietetic technicians, and diabetes educators. -- Journal of the American Dietetic Association (97:2, February 1997) Overall the text is thorough, clear and well-written by credible RDs and MDs...The syllabus enables the reader to locate points of interest quickly rather than sifting through a large number of pages. I recommend the book to anyone providing care to patients with diabetes. -- Susan Nolan, Barrie Community Health Centre, Barrie, ON Anyone studying for the certified diabetes educator examination would benefit from a close review of this book. I just took the exam and wish I had used Handbook of Diabetes Medical Nutrition Therapy as an adjunct to the core curriculum guide offered with the examination. -- Sari Edelstein, PhD, RD Health Maintenance Organization-Based Private Practice Miami, FLPowers, Margaret A. is the author of 'Handbook of Diabetes Medical Nutrition Therapy', published 1996 under ISBN 9780834206311 and ISBN 0834206315.
