”La Diabetes, Mi Familia y Yo” is a book aimed to educate Type 2 Diabetes patients and their families, as a support network, on topics about how to handle the disease and lookout for complications related to it.
This book was published in 2014 by researchers at Universidad Autonoma de Yucatan. I did all the book illustrations as a pro-bono project. This collaboration was possible due to my previous studies of Medicine at the same university. I have collaborated in some research projects as well and translated several scientific articles.
The book is divided in several chapters, each dealing with topics that are of uttermost importance for the patients and their families to understand in order to work towards a good management of the disease and its complications. Some of those topics are: complications, treatments, exercise and lifestyle changes, pregnancy, myths, and the family as a support network.
