Dr. David Nathan was one of the lead researchers of the landmark Diabetes Control and Complications Trial sponsored by the National Institutes of Health. It scientifically proved that the right program of nutrition and exercise can prevent diabetes in people on the brink of the disease. The same lessons can have a major effect in those who already have diabetes.
Approximately 800,000 new cases of diabetes are diagnosed each year in the United States, and that number continues to rise sharply. The results of the Diabetes Control and Complications Trial received enormous media attention because this approach to lifestyle change offers real hope to the vast and growing number of people with prediabetes (40 million in the United States alone) and those with type 2 diabetes (16 million).
Now, in Beating Diabetes, Dr. Nathan teams up with fellow Harvard Medical School expert Linda Delahanty to arm people at high risk for developing diabetes and those with type 2 diabetes with the first complete, clinically proven program of its kind. Readers get:

The clinically proven lifestyle strategies you'll find in Beating Diabetes can halt--and in some cases actually reverse--diabetes and its precursor, prediabetes. If you already have diabetes, these lifestyle strategies can help you normalize your blood sugar and maximize your health and quality of life.
In 2001, Health and Human Services Secretary Tommy G. Thompson announced that researchers conducting a National Institutes of Health study, the Diabetes Prevention Program, had determined that with relatively modest lifestyle changes those at risk for developing diabetes could dramatically reduce their chances of developing the disease.
Picking up where that study left off, Harvard Medical School's David M. Nathan, M.D., one of the leaders of the Diabetes Prevention Program, and Linda Delahanty, M.S., R.D., a leading diabetes nutrition expert who helped design and implement the Diabetes Prevention Program, offer you the first science-based, clinically proven program for beating diabetes through lifestyle changes--without drugs. The premise of this evidence-based program is that inserting diets and exercise into your life doesn't work. Instead, modest changes in lifestyle that are sustainable, day-in and day-out, are the key to effective prevention and treatment of diabetes and its associated disorders.
With the help of inspiring real-life success stories of the authors' patients, Beating Diabetes arms you with the information you need to regain control over your health, including:
This important new book from the experts at Harvard Medical School empowers you with the knowledge you need to take charge of your health and beat diabetes.
You can beat diabetes! Learn how from the experts at Harvard Medical School
Finally, some good news for people diagnosed with diabetes or at risk for it. Medical research has shown that with relatively easy, simple-to-adopt lifestyle changes you can dramatically reduce your chances of developing diabetes if you have prediabetes, and, even more remarkably, you can stop type 2 diabetes in its tracks if you already have the disease.
Sound too good to be true? It isn't, and in Beating Diabetes, you'll discover the first complete, medically proven program for preventing or controlling diabetes with nothing more complicated than making healthier food choices and increasing your activity levels and exercise.
