The A PRACTICAL GUIDE TO DIABETES MELLITUS depicts diabetes mellitus, DM, which is an emerging global health problem, where millions are affected by this chronic and potentially life-threatening disease. The human impact of diabetes includes devastating complications, economic hardships and reduction in the most creative and productive years of life. Though challenging to implement, optimal diabetes management has been proven to reduce the complications of diabetes. This underscores the vital need for training health care professionals in comprehensive diabetes management, particularly in settings that provide care to the poor. The solutions are not simple, and essentially would involve proper counseling of the mothers and families of those children who are born low birth weight. The role of councilors and educators who could be nurses, dieticians, physiotherapists and even school teachers in large numbers would be important in disseminating information and supporting the role of public health physicians and family physicians in handling this pandemic.
