The psychological impact of dealing with the stress of the daily management of both type 1 and type 2 diabetes can be frustrating and challenging. Yet this area is rarely discussed in medical settings despite the fact that the emotional context can undermine the persons ability to stay motivated in the essential self-care tasks that are vital for good health. Diabetes and Wellbeing presents a range of research-based psychological principles that have been demonstrated to positively impact emotional wellbeing. It covers a broad spectrum of diabetes care from managing the initial diagnosis, overcoming depression and diabetes burnout, dealing effectively with fears and anxiety, managing food and weight issues and eating disorders, coping with the impact of sexual difficulties, and communicating with healthcare professionals.   Jen Nash effectively guides the reader through strategies  for better management of the issues associated with living with diabetes, moving individuals towards greater physical and psychological wellbeing and as a result a healthier future. This innovative yet practical guide is invaluable for individuals living with diabetes, those supporting others with diabetes, and healthcare professionals involved in the care of patients with diabetes.
