Women and diabetes! A huge market and a huge need. The Sisterhood of Diabetes engages the reader with 44 true-life stories of women with diabetes-the challenges they faced and the adventures they took. These accomplished women, of all ages and from around the world, are athletes, scholars, champions in many ways who will motivate and inspire others, whether diabetic or not, in redefining abilities and venturing beyond self-imposed limits. The message here is to live your dreams with diabetes, or any other challenges, with a positive attitude and inspired determination. While many books offer the "do's and don'ts” of diabetes care, this book bypasses the humdrum and the confusing fuselage of medical terminology and treatment to bring the reader face to face with the real struggles and joys of living with diabetes. Judith Ambrosini has lived under the influence of Type 1 diabetes for over 50 years. She knows the importance of exercise, sports and leading an active life as a major component of excellent diabetes care. This understanding influenced her to run and walk marathons, to cycle, dance, and to practice and teach tai chi, which she continues to do today. This health challenge has also guided her to be of service in the international diabetes community. The women she has interviewed for this book come from as far away as Berlin, Australia, New Zealand, Italy and Canada, and as close to home as the next town. They are each strong and confident in their sports and in their lives. Diabetes has become a household word. Everybody knows someone who has it. No longer a fatal disease since the introduction of insulin injection, the escalating numbers of cases is staggering. There are currently over 26 million men, women and children with diabetes in the USA, and 286 million cases worldwide. This book sheds bright light on what can sometimes be a devastating prognosis, by telling true and encouraging stories of successful individuals. The vast primary audience for this book is the diabetes population, but it will be an effective tool for clinicians and health professionals for their own education, and as recommended motivational reading for their patients. Libraries, universities, hospitals, and community resource centers will benefit from the information presented here. The book is also of great appeal to the general reading population for the stories it tells of how people cope and succeed despite obstacles.

A ten year age difference between half sisters Cher Smithfield and Ariel Taylor is not the only thing that divides them. From day one they've clashed about nearly everything, including Ariel's crush on Cher's ex-husband. Ariel, at 28, is still trying to find herself, while Cher has a perfect life managing a family property. She lives upstairs and runs a coffee shop, on the main floor. Then Cher's stepfather divides the property, giving half to Ariel. Ariel has no blood claim to the property, and Cher once again is forced to overcome her little sister's stubborn ideas of what is fair and right. For Ariel, turning the coffee shop into a full service restaurant is a no-brainer. For Cher, it means her quiet life and sweet oasis has just turned into chaos.

It started as the perfect story. Zippora Karz was a member of the famed New York City Ballet by the age of eighteen. By twenty she was starring as the Sugar Plum Fairy in The Nutcracker, dancing roles created by Jerome Robbins, and traveling the world. It was the stuff dreams are made of until, at age twenty-one, Karz was diagnosed with diabetes. Balancing ballet and her blood sugar would be a long and difficult struggle for Karz. In The Sugarless Plum, Karz shares her journey from denial, shame and miseducation about her illness to how she led an active, balanced and satisfying life as an insulin-dependent diabetic and soloist with one of the world's most famous ballet companies. The Sugarless Plum takes readers deep into the heart and soul of a young dancer, and is a remarkable testament to determination and perseverance.
