Product description

As of 2017, more than 30 million Americans have diabetes. Another 84 million–more than 30% of the adult population–have elevated blood sugar levels that put them at risk for developing Type 2 diabetes. For most of us, it takes a medical emergency to get us to make vital changes to our eating, exercise habits, and weight control. At that point it is often too little, too late. The unfortunate reality is that 80% of diabetics will die of a heart attack. This book is the trigger for you to make lifestyle changes before any medical emergency ever occurs.

In Winning Your Blood Sugar Battle, Dr. Richard Furman shows you the three essential steps to take in order to defeat diabetes before it defeats you. He carefully explains the latest medical literature, offers proven guidelines on what to eat (and what not to eat), and outlines an effective exercise program for keeping the heart healthy.

Anyone who is diabetic, prediabetic, or overweight, as well as the loved one or caregiver who wants specific directions for supporting the diabetic in their life as they make vital lifestyle changes, will find this book a lifeline.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK 

My reason for wanting to review this book is because I am one of the 30 million Americans who deal with diabetes daily. And even though mine is more of a border line level, I would very much like to be able to control diabeties more.

The contents page is where I started because I wanted to see what Dr. Furman would be talking about. The book is in two sections. The first section is about the whys and hows of how diabetes starts. This book is written with more of the medical aspects of this disease, so theres a lot of info to show how your diabetes gets started. The second part is the down to earth part of how to get diabetes under control. The main thing he talks about is the lifestyle changes that needs to be made. He has some sample meals and foods to eat, but honestly, if I ate exactly like he says all of the time, it would get boring, and I would go right back to my old habits. So I think I will approach this information by taking his advise on everything and try to come up with lifestyle changes I can live with. So though this book is great if you want the medical side, I think other materials can help more with the diet side. But I do recommend this book, it’s interesting to see the medical side, and that’s information we all need.
