9780316093446: Dr. Bernstein's Diabetes Solution: A Complete Guide to Achieving Normal Blood Sugars

Richard Bernstein is a legendary figure in the diabetic community, an engineer who developed a revolutionary new method of treating his own diabetes in the 1970s -- and then entered medical school at age forty-five so he could help other diabetics. Despite initial opposition from the medical establishment, Dr. Bernstein's method, which calls for the careful monitoring and control of blood sugar levels, has become the standard treatment for the disease.Now Dr. Bernstein distills all of his personal experience and medical expertise -- and presents a unique resource book that is destined to become the bible for diabetics everywhere. Covering both adult- and childhood-onset diabetes, this is the only guide that details the Bernstein method, explaining step-by-step how to normalize blood' sugar levels and prevent or reverse complications. Complete with up-to-the-minute information on blood-testing devices and new types of insulin as well as fifty gourmet recipes and a comprehensive discussion of diet, obesity, and new drugs to curb carbohydrate craving, Dr. Bernstein's Diabetes Solution is the one book every diabetic must own.

About the Author:

Richard K. Bernstein, MD, is one of the world's foremost experts in diabetes treatment and care. He is the author of six books about diabetes, including The Diabetes Diet. Dr. Bernstein is the emeritus director of the Peripheral Vascular Disease Clinic at Jacobi Medical Center, an instructor at New York Medical College, fellow of the American College of Nutrition, and as a consultant to the Department of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine at Albert Einstein College of Medicine. An attending physician at North Bronx Healthcare Network, he also maintains a private practice in Mamaroneck, NY, where he lives.

From Booklist:

Bernstein has had type I (juvenile or insulin-dependent) diabetes for 50 years and has become well known for his unconventional approach to treating both types of the disease. His emphases on almost hour-by-hour normalization of blood sugar and a diet consisting of nearly no carbohydrates and high levels of fat and protein have certainly educed two results: they have alienated many other diabetes specialists and required Bernstein's patients to be meticulous in self-managing their disease. Bernstein begins with some successful case histories, proceeds to basic backgrounding on diabetes, and then describes his treatment plan in considerable detail. He discusses diet, types of insulin and their uses, and the importance of establishing a close relationship with one's physician. He encourages his patients to make frequent visits to his office, makes himself available by phone virtually round the clock, and here includes five appendixes of data and exposition to help patients align their physicians' thinking with his.
