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.
