( - Celebrating more than 20 years in print with close to a million satisfied readers, the fifth edition of The Diabetes Counter is the best resource available for a person with diabetes. Whether you are newly diagnosed or trying to fine tune your management plan, the book will give you the tools needed to understand and manage diabetes. It will help you sort through the latest research providing accurate, current information on meal planning, carbohydrate counting, eating sugar, understanding fiber, and the value of the glycemic index.

The Diabetes Counter by Karen J. Nolan, PhD and Jo-Ann Heslin, MA, RD, CDN, provides calorie, carbohydrate, fiber, sugar and fat values for over 12,000 foods including generic, brand names, restaurant chains, and take-out choices. Now you can compare the values in your favorite foods and, when necessary, choose substitutes before you go out to shop or eat.

Every day, 5,200 new cases of diabetes are diagnosed in the U.S. There is no question that being diagnosed with diabetes is a jolt - emotionally, physically, and even socially. It is a condition that requires daily attention and modifications in how you lead your life. At first, most newly diagnosed people feel devastated. Having to change the way you eat, and being told to lose weight, exercise, and take medication is overwhelming. But, there is good news. Diabetes is a condition over which you have a great deal of control. And, the more control you exercise the healthier and more complication-free your life will be.

Since 1991 The Diabetes Counter has been helping people manage diabetes. It offers simple, practical, easy-to-use information to help understand and manage diabetes each day. The book is sprinkled with information boxes, tables, tips and tools for easy access to information you need.

The reader will find out:

Knowledge is power - The more you know about diabetes, the better you can take care of yourself and the healthier you will be. The Diabetes Counter, 5th edition ( is a valuable resource to help you achieve your goals.
