Diabetes Cookbook For Dummies, 2nd Edition
Dr. Rubin was one of the first specialists in his field to recognize the significance of patient self-testing of blood glucose, the major advance in diabetes care since the advent of insulin. As a result, he has been on numerous radio and television programs, talking about the cause, prevention, and treatment of diabetes and its complications. His first book, Diabetes For Dummies, is a basic reference for any nonprofessional who wants to understand diabetes. It has sold more than 250,000 copies and has been translated into French, Chinese, Vietnamese, and Russian. It is out in a second edition. He is also the author of Thyroid For Dummies and High Blood Pressure For Dummies.
