Print Length: 56 pages
Genre: Self-Help
"When we get to the end of our day, we want to sit back and reflect on everything we did, and we want to know in our hearts that we did a good job being good diabetics for another day."

A book for all ages, and whether you are diabetic or live with some one who is, this book is a valuable and educational read for everyone.

Larry the left foot and Roger the right foot are sure to delight and amuse you as they take you through a typical day in their lives. They show you how they strive to be the very best diabetics that they can be by living a healthy lifestyle every single day. As a result of dedication to their plan, they are certain that they will live longer, happier lives full of enjoyment and fun.

This is a multidimensional book featuring a short illustrated story that portrays a day in the life of a diabetic. On a whole different level, each page is full of great information for those who wish to dig a bit deeper into the whys and hows of simplifying diabetic life. It also includes many references, in a system that is built to help in teaching you how to find the answers to any questions that you may have.

Quality support is key for every diabetic. It takes a team to keep a good diabetic in tip top shape. We keep in close contact with our doctor for regular check ups and evaluation, our diabetic clinic for nutrition and exercise support, and our foot care specialist.

“I’ve booked an appointment for today for foot care, Larry,” says Roger. “She’ll check them, trim our nails, and look after any other issues.”

“Yay! And hopefully a good foot massage if we’re lucky,” I pipe in gleefully as I jump up and down.

Resources are readily available for all diabetics. We—well, actually, Roger—regularly research online, everything from simple questions to big lifestyle changes that we may want to implement. If you don’t have access to the internet, there are still many options available for you. Roger is the info junkie; he’s continually looking for new advice, ideas, or tricks.
