While we applaud much of what Dr. Bernstein has done, we believe the diet is rather restrictive, especially for children due to the careful carbohydrate counting involved. We think the diabetic alkaline lifestyle is a better approach because it may essentially eliminate the need to count carbohydrates by focusing on the “right carbs.” Even so, we are very grateful to Dr. Bernstein for his book that explains so much about diabetes, and for his willingness to develop his program almost completely outside the mainstream of diabetology, due to their lack of acceptance. In fact, “What Dr. Bernstein learned in healing himself [he has been a T1D for 65 years now] – and what he passes along to his patients – is almost exactly the opposite of the prevailing orthodoxy in diabetes treatment.”
Since its first publication in 1997, DR. BERNSTEIN’S DIABETES SOLUTION has become the bible for diabetics. Dr. Richard Bernstein’s groundbreaking approach to diabetes care enables you to take control of the disease by normalizing your blood sugars. Dr. Bernstein himself is living proof of the success of his methods. Diagnosed with diabetes at age twelve, he was a successful business executive and engineer when he worked out a way to normalize his blood sugars. This, in turn reversed many of the long-term complications he had suffered from for years. At the age of forty-five, he entered medical school in order to publish his findings and eventually treat other diabetics.
In this newly revised and updated edition, Dr. Bernstein provides an accessible, detailed guide to his revolutionary approach to regulating blood sugars and outlines his methods for preventing or reversing the long-term complications of diabetes. He offers the most up-to-date information on new products, medications, and supplements. He explains the connection between obesity and Type 2 diabetes, shows how to interrupt the cycle of obesity and insulin resistance, and reveals a new method for losing weight quickly and easily. With a strong emphasis on proper diet, Dr. Bernstein tells you what foods to avoid and why. His indispensable discussion of dietary planning includes guidelines for creating a customized meal plan, complete with low-carb, high-protein gourmet recipes.
Dr. Bernstein discusses the most recent breakthrough science and potential cures, including new uses of medication and exercise approaches to control weight. The only book to detail step-by-step methods for normalizing blood sugars in both type 1 and type 2 diabetes, DR. BERNSTEIN’S DIABETES SOLUTION will help you take charge of your diabetes and live a longer, healthier life.
