Called "Where Do I Begin," the 16-page guide helps patients and clients understand the fundamentals of type 2 diabetes and the steps that can be taken to live with the disease. The publication includes information on the role of exercise, proper diet, medicines, and support in managing the condition, and encourages patients to sign up for a free 1-year ADA program called "Living With Type 2 Diabetes." The booklets are being offered at no charge. PTs and PTAs interested in obtaining copies of "Where Do I Begin" can order online.
