New Book Explores What Must Be Done to Stop Obesity and Type 2 Epidemic

May 1, 2005

Legendary endocrinologist Francine R. Kaufman, MD, has written a new book entitled “Diabesity: The Obesity-Diabetes Epidemic That Threatens America—And What We Must Do To Stop It” (Bantam Books, 2005).

Kaufman wrote the book to educate the public about the costs and long-term implications of diabetes. The book explains why diabetes has assumed epidemic proportions in America and exposes the true extent of the suffering diabetes can cause and the steps that must be taken to prevent its spread.

Kaufman says she wrote the book because she wants to share her experiences as a diabetes doctor, researcher and advocate.

“I want you to see what diabetes and obesity have done to the many patients and people I know and care for, so you will understand why we must restructure the way we live,” says Kaufman.

“Diabesity: The Obesity-Diabetes Epidemic That Threatens America—And What We Must Do To Stop It” retails for $27 and is available from and bookstores everywhere.
