    This book honestly has saved our lives physically and emotionally I should wear a sign around my neck everywhere I go that states Diabetic? Ask Me about My husband was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes about 15 years ago It had been steadily advancing along with all the insidious side effects His diet strictly followed his doctor's advise but his diabetes was spiraling out of control This book explains all the physiology involved takes the blame off the lazy diabetics who can't control their cravings Once one truly understands the affects of the disease on the body and the brain difficult decisions suddenly make sense and therefore easier to make I am not diabetic but decided to follow the diet to support my husband and to also try to gain some understanding in how difficult a life change this might be The first week was very difficult with highs and lows as we figured out his body's reactions I felt utterly obsesed with food and fingerpricks but his sugars completely stablized after four days After the second week he declared that he would NEVER go back to his old eating habits After 3 weeks many of his complications began to dissappear Now after 3 months the food choices seem natural and easy I know I must be driving my friends and acuaintances crazy but I will say it again This book saved our lives

    This book changed my life I've had Type 1 diabetes for 48 years and managed it well but not until I read this book did I understand in depth the interplay of insulin food exercise and of course the associated seuelae I also learned perhaps most importantly that blood sugars kept within normal range can result in diminished or even reversed seuelae That was a eureka moment for me I'd always thought that diabetes related decay of every organ in the body barring hair follicles; they're not so sure about that I have weird hair but I don't think it's diabetes related was or less inevitable If you have diabetes or have a diabetic relative who could use some help you might want to read or recommend this book Then again you might not I'll explain Bernstein developed Type 1 diabetes as a young man Following then current wisdom on insulin dosing diet and exercise he was a wreck As in passing out at the wheel and crashing That is not a metaphor Bernstein then an engineer in the medical devices field began to research the disease One thing he found was that lab animals if their blood sugars were kept within the range of normal could be essentially cured of diabetes andor its seuelae The thinking back then was that this was impossible for humans for whatever bizarre rationale We are not animals? We lack discipline? Honey show me a way to fix this malady and I'll be a soldier who won't flinch when you slice off his nipple That analogy courtesy of the season's opener for Game of Thrones No no don't thank meHe heard of a new device relatively portable suitcase sized to test blood sugar on the spot as opposed to the very long times it had taken bear in mind the doctor is now in his 80s; this was long before at home portable personal glucose testing devices He wanted one They wouldn't sell it to him They said these were just for emergency rooms for the purpose of differentiating passed out drunks from hypoglycemic faints They said diabetics would never test their own blood sugar So Bernstein got his wife a medical doctor to get him one and he set about normalizing his blood sugars Well He did darn good He got his blood sugar within normal range in the 80s and his seuelae went poof He also looks like somebody suffering from starvation Which brings me to why you might not bother to read this book or have your diabetic loved ones read it This stuff is hard This stuff reuires a discipline that's severe when it comes to diet and medication to exercise to cooking your own food to all sorts of diabetic fun fun fun Not many people can do things the way the good doctor Bernstein carefully lays out in this excellent book That's why people die from diabetes Thank God I'm blessed with discipline and with the ability to cook and with a rabid love of living This is doable It's all doable I don't look like a Holocaust survivor I look plump and happy Albeit with weird hair I eat like a horse I don't feel deprived I gorge myself on fat and protein and I eat tons of low carb vegetables This is important This is key You can do this Your diabetic friends and relatives can do thisBut you or they have to really really want to do it Best of luck to all in dealing with the big D

    This book is a must read for everyone with diabetes suspect diabetes or even for someone who is simply overweight What Dr Bernstein reveals with plenty pf detail and provable facts is the close relationship with blood sugar disorder and weight gain Not only that He gets the record straight about what it is that makes us fat and why diabetes kills so manyThat alone would be a reason to read this book but he goes beyond it and explains how anyone with diabetes can have a normal life with normal blood sugar thus eliminating all health complications such as heart and kidney failures or limb amputationThe remedies he proposes may not be fit for everyone You will need a strong will to achieve the lifestyle change that leads to health But there are so many testimonials first among them the author himself who has been living a healthy life with diabetes for than 60 years that you feel compelled to at least give this method a try And I have to say that I did try and the results are magnificent Thus the only thing I need to do is to recommend this book

    This book is a life saver Give it to anyone you know who is diabetic I am a type II and after reading this book I lost 50 pounds was taken off insulin and three of four medications and am controlling my diabetes through diet and exercise It's all about dietary sugar The ADA teaches that sugar is sugar Dr Bernstein shows otherwise Limiting certain dietary sugars lowers your blood sugar and removes all the symptoms of high blood sugars Diabetes could be viewed as a person's reaction to dietary sugars two hours after every meal

    This is an extremely useful detailed book that presents a low carbohydrate diet that will keep your blood sugars down to normal levelsDr Bernstein has himself suffered from diabetes from the age of 12 and he describes how his health deteriorated due to lack of proper treatment until he suffered from several dangerous complications resulting from the disorder He had to find out how to normalize his blood sugars himself and this he did This normalization resulted in his getting rid of most of the complications Then he had to go to medical school at the late age of 45 in order to be able to treat and help other diabetes patients Because of all this I have great respect for him He has devoted his life to helping diabetes sufferers all over the worldBernstein advises that we must follow a diet based on eating 6g of carbohydrate for breakfast 12 g for lunch and 12g for supperHe lists which foods are acceptable and which are No no There is also a chapter presenting recipe suggestions near the end of the bookI personally have been much helped by this book since despite my suffering clear signs of the illness both high and low blood sugars my doctor told me my tests were completely normal and I had no problems of this sort whatsoever An alternative in this country scanning method actually a wholly scientiic method used in Russia and other Eastern European countries in hospitals and by doctors for over 20 years confirmed my own diagnosis auto immune insulin dependent diabetes mellitus I suffer also from pains in my toes Because of the lack of official diagnosis I am unable to get free testing euipment or stripsHowever Dr Bernstein has confirmed my own and the scanning apparatus' diagnosis My HcbA IC value was 55% which is euivalent to a blood sugar reading of 120 mgdl The HgbA IC value is 42% in non diabetics this being euivalent to 83 mgdl On researching the matter Bernstein found that persons having a blood sugar level of 90 mgdl or over had a higher mortality than those having a level under 90 mgdlI was also helped by the author's explanation as to why I felt shaky and weak in the morning as if I had low blood sugar when actually it was 120 mgdl This is apparently a common phenomenon It feels like low blood sugar only in comparison with the high blood sugars one experiences after eatingThe author goes into extreme detail about the various types of insulin available how and when to painlessly inject and so on This information will be extremely useful to those who use insulin There are also helpful chapters about hypoglycemia gastroparesis delayed stomach emptying and exercise among other thingsSince I can't get insulin and wouldn't want to use it anyway I appreciate the author's tip that R alpha lipoic acid when used together with evening primrose oil mimics the effect of insulin and can help to reduce blood sugars though ALA reduces the body's levels of biotin which should thus be taken at the same timeBernstein's main uality is the immense detail of his explanationsThis said I would like to note a few negative points He advocates the use of micro wave ovens which are known to destroy the life energy in food subjected to them And he also recommends the use of aspartame Splenda and other artifical sweeteners documented as being harmful It is as though he knows everything about how to counteract the harmful effects of diabetes but is not so aware of other threats to our healthMoreover since he himself suffers from beta cell burnout he doesn't really go into the possibilities of healing the pancreas by natural methods and thus increasing the production of insulin The author's beta cells may or may not be beyond repair but this will not be the case with many others reading the bookFor information about such natural methods i would advise the reading of Cass Ingram's book Natural cures for diabetes in conjunction with this book But I absolutely recommend that you read this book too especially if you use insulin

    I'll start with this incredible uote on page 33 “studies predict that 95% of Americans born today will develop diabetes” Dr Bernstein didn't provide a source for that amazing percentage but if you're reading this chances are overwhelming that you or your kids parents siblings friends and neighbors will develop diabetes—or maybe all of you This percentage is higher than the estimated population affected in medieval Europe during it's several plague outbreaks It's even higher than the estimated numbers of American Indians decimated by smallpox in the 1500s I don't have diabetes but I've seen similar percentages from different sources I've never seen the figure 95% before but I've seen estimates that are all pretty high Dr Bernstein goes on to say that—even today—deaths related to diabetes is probably way underreported For example if you die from stoke sepsis heart attack etc then your death will be attributed to the proximal cause not necessarily the underlying diabetes that caused the eventual pathophysiologies I feel like diabetes will overwhelm the health industry will break Medicare and Medicaid and will emerge in the next few decades not as an epidemic but as a pandemic of epic proportions Governments will struggle to survive; civilization may even teeter with a 95% rate of incidence It's from this macabre personal forecast that I felt compelled to learn a little than I already do about diabetes This is not the book to read if you're interested in diabetes forecasting the science of future treatment medical perspectives or public policy regarding diabetes Instead it's a book that outlines in great detail personal treatment regimens Dr Bernstein has had Type I diabetes for over 50 years and the treatment he writes about are methods that he has followed himself In fact he developed his insulin regimen and diet in the absence of what he felt was sufficient diabetic treatment back in the Jurassic period of diabetic knowledge the 60's 70's and 80's He offers recommendations that differ dramatically from standard diabetic treatment for both Type I and II Dr Bernstein makes clear up front that his book will offer advice that other clinicians may not fully support For proof that it does work however he offers as testimony the thousands of patients that have journeyed to find him and learn his practices And for people who have had little success with traditional practices Dr Bernstein's methods must seem like a God send Again I'm not a diabetic nor do I have one in the family but eventually I will This book will humble you to the insulin and food restrictions followed by most diabetics It also taught me that diabetes is not unsurvivable; on the contrary Dr Bernstein has described how easily it can be mitigated His overall thesis is something he calls 'The Law of Small Numbers' In a nutshell it's much easier and healthier to deal with your glucose levels when you're administering small amounts but much freuently In Bernstein's words on page 102 the name of the game for the diabetic in achieving blood sugar normalization is predictability So yes injections but a less maundering blood sugar level throughout the day Here's some high points How and when to measure blood sugars Establishing treatment plans What you've been taught about diet is probably wrong carbs bad; protein good Proscons of Insulin Sensitizing Agents Insulin Mimetic Agents Uniue exercise program which helps with insulin dose absorption timing Types of insulin most rapid acting rapid acting intermediate acting long acting Insulin regimens Recipes

    This book is almost exactly what I wanted I have Pre diabetes and having been inching to diabetes since my late twenties I have been struggling to understand how much carbohydrates I should limit myself to and also what those carbohydrates are Since I have never reached diabetes in my blood sugar readings I never was ualified for the free diabetes training offered at hospitals Also I couldn't afford to pay for itDr Richard K Bernstein boils everything down in simple and not confusing language He has Diabetes Type I and was never able to control it using the guidelines that were offered when he was young He decided to figure out what works for him and from that sprang his plan that can be used by most diabeticsHe explained the effects of blood sugar are on our bones skin moods and joints He discussed the tests that should be used for the initial workup including one that I have never had I will discuss that one with my doctor on the next appointmentHe also provides a list of prescription and none prescription medicines that can raise your blood sugarI found one that I take twice a day so I will discuss with my doctor if it can be changedI learned so much from this book but there were a few drawbacks I wished for recipes in the back I am not sure that I agree with him on the use of malodextrin Since I checked many websites on it with opposing views I am now confused as to whether I should avoid it Also can I totally give up bread and all baked goods and fruit? I will cut down but can I totally eliminate it? I think I will slowly cut down and eliminaate the foods that he said are No No And I will look for and increase the foods that he says are safe for diabetics Also in Chapter 13 he lists three exceptions to people who can do fine on his diet plan I have one of the conditions and a possible second one that he lists However he only discusses solutions for the third exception so I am left hanging with the uestion of what do I do? Beyond that I really love the clear language and the way that he explained things that I have been confused about for yearsI recommend this book for all people with diabetes and pre DiabetesI won this book from GoodReads and received it from the publishers but that in no way influenced my review

A simple way to know you have this problem is if you have excess body fat around your waist That means your insulin levels are out of control Insulin is the fat storage hormone Diabetes is a disease in which a person has high blood sugar either because the body does not produce enough insulin or because cells do not respond to the insulin that is producedAfter reading this book I went and bought a blood sugar monitor I started testing my blood sugar five times a day to see what the food I ate was doing to me I found that I cannot handle carbohydrates carbohydrate means foods such as cereals bread and pasta or simple carbohydrates such as sugar found in candy jams and desserts I have a pre diabetes condition and I wouldn't have realized this unless I started testing my blood sugar This book is a must read for anyone who has diabetes or pre diabetes with metabolic syndrome or syndrome x metabolic syndrome is a cluster of conditions — increased blood pressure a high blood sugar level excess body fat around the waist or abnormal cholesterol levels This book can help you prevent getting diabetes or help you from developing some of the devastating health problems that come with uncontrolled diabetes Read the rest of my review here
