For people living with Type 2 Diabetes, understanding their condition and the medical advice they receive can be confusing. Dr. Eno Nsima-Obot understands this and that is why she has released "Dr. Eno's A-to_Z Guide to Thriving with Type 2 Diabetes". Her new book presents, in a conversational tone, the questions that plague many of her patients.
"I see so many patients who simply don't understand what their doctors tell them about Type 2 diabetes. They become overwhelmed and most times end up not doing the right thing. I wanted to help bridge that gap. It is only through understanding your condition that you can effectively take control of it and make decisions that will help you thrive”, explained Eno Nsima-Obot, MD. (www.DoctorEno.com)
The book Is written in an easy to understand format, using the letters of the alphabet to describe different aspects of diabetes care. As a Book Excellence Award winner, ”Dr. Eno's A-to-Z Guide to Thriving with Type 2 Diabetes" is an essential resource for diabetes patients.
More than just a physician, Dr. Nsima-Obot is also a trained professional life coach. This combination of skills and interests leads her to help her patients focus on wellness and healthy living rather than disease. To that end, Dr. Nsima-Obot has designed the book to serve as a daily resource for diabetes patients and has provided journaling space in the book, allowing them to reflect on what they have read and how it can apply to their lives. Dr. Nsima-Obot notes that maintaining healthy blood sugar levels can be achieved through lifestyle, yet many patients are unaware of just how to do that.
"It is possible to live well and to thrive with a chronic illness such as Type 2 diabetes. It all begins with the mindset, what I call the ABC- Accept, Believe and Commit. Blood sugar levels can be controlled, in some cases even without medication. If you know how to control your blood sugar levels and live a healthy lifestyle, you can thrive. By that I mean enjoy a life which is full and enriching as ever. This book is my way of telling readers that the time to embrace a healthy lifestyle is now. More than ever before, once you've been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, a healthy lifestyle is essential to your long-term health and well-being," explained Dr. Nsima-Obot.
