  • We have translations into Spanish and into Hebrew!
  • ¡Novedad! ¡Traducción al Español!
  • There are three more new pills for persons with Type 2 diabetes. Two of the pills are similar to Rezulin , but may be less likely to cause liver damage. Rezulin (r) (troglitazone) was voluntarily withdrawn from the market by the manufacturer on March 21, 2000. These pills are called Avandia and Actos . The other new medication is Prandin , and it is designed to be taken before meals. See Chapter 9.

This is the third edition of a full length book created for persons with diabetes and their families. It aims to provide trustworthy information in a useful, easy-to-read form. We offer it on line as a service to all persons with diabetes.

This first and second editions of this Handbook were prepared by Ruth E. Lundstrom, R.N., N.P., C.D.E., M.S. and Aldo A. Rossini, M.D., Professor of Medicine and Director of the Division of Diabetes at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. Editorial assistance was provided by Paul Carlson.

Preparation of this electronic edition in 1995 was undertaken by John P. Mordes, M.D. with the collaboration of Will Manis. The Spanish translation is by Jessie A. Block-Galarza, M.D. The Hebrew translation was done as a work of charity by an anonymous benefactor to whom we extend our thanks.
