People with diabetes are six times as likely to have a heart disease, four times as likely to have a stroke and there is also the risk of kidney failure, blindness and even amputation of lower limbs.

Two recent studies in the British Journal of Sports Medicine showed that Tai Chi can improve blood glucose levels and improve the control of type 2 diabetes. This is good news for those that have been diagnosed with diabetes, as Tai Chi is an exercise that almost anyone can do and benefit from.

This book combines their medical and Tai chi expertise and provides practical information on diabetes, ranging from how it affects your body to the best diet to follow and how to look after your day-to-day health.

It includes The Tai Chi for Diabetes program that has been especially designed for people with diabetes in collaboration with Diabetes Australia.

It includes step-by-step instructions, with 200 professional black and white and colour photos illustrate each Tai Chi move.
