According to the American Diabetes Association, diabetes was the seventh leading cause of death in the United States in 2017. 


Diabetes may be underreported as a cause of death. Studies have found that only about 35% to 40% of people with diabetes who died had diabetes listed anywhere on the death certificate and about 10% to 15% had it listed as the underlying cause of death. What can be done to fight this deadly disease and help those diagnosed live, feel, and look good while managing their diabetes?

In her book, Diabetes Made Better, Author Danielle Batiste opens a world of understanding through personal experiences beginning the day of her own medical diagnosis. From a good night’s sleep to travel planning, Batiste and her co-authors provide tools and resources that will transform the lives of diabetics and their family members.
