New EBook Series From Defeat Diabetes Foundation Aims To Assist Diabetics In Living Healthier

MADEIRA BEACH, Fla., March 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Diabetes is a life-altering and life-threatening disease. Unfortunately, everyone with diabetes is at greater risk for complications, including: heart attacks, strokes, kidney disease, blindness, amputations, Alzheimer's disease, dental (oral) problems and more. Seven out of 10 people with diabetes suffer from at least one complication of diabetes and many of them suffer from more than one. But, these complications don't have to be the inevitable result of diabetes. It's one of the reasons Defeat Diabetes Foundation has published the Defeat Diabetes® Rules for Survivalâ„¢ series - to help people with diabetes live healthier and avoid the tragic and profound complications of the disease.

Whether you are newly diagnosed, or a veteran of diabetes, you know that diabetes is a complex and confusing disease. In addition to drastic lifestyle changes, people with diabetes are confronted with terminology and procedures that range from intimidating to overwhelming. This EBook series will explain the ways diabetes can impact your various organ systems and how to avoid complications. 

The average person with diabetes spends a mere 63 minutes each year with their doctor. The rest of the time they are solely responsible for managing their own condition. As a diabetic, your continued good health depends on having knowledge about all aspects of diabetes. Such knowledge is an important component to your long-term physical and emotional health.

"Diabetics are neither helpless nor hopeless," says Defeat Diabetes Foundation Executive Director Andrew P. Mandell – Mr. Diabetes®. "It's possible to live a long, active and fruitful life with diabetes - you just need to follow the 'rules for survival.' In spite of severe diabetic neuropathy (and other diabetes-related issues), I walked the 10,000-mile perimeter of the United States. I couldn't have done that if I didn't take control of my condition," Mandell continued.

"People who are in good control of their diabetes have a lifestyle that everyone should emulate," says Mandell. "Eating healthy whole foods, including plenty of fruits and vegetables, whole grains, lean meat and fish, and being physically active at least 30 minutes per day is a prescription for health for diabetics and non-diabetics alike," concludes Mandell.
