This practical handbook covers topics including, current recommendations about day-to-day precautions, diagnosis, and treatment; early symptoms and self-monitoring that can be essential to early diagnosis; methods of coping with emotional stresses and physical challenges; and practical issues related to work, insurance, and finding and paying for treatment.
