50 Diabetes Myths That Can Ruin Your Life: And the 50 Diabetes Truths That Can Save It One by one, Riva Greenberg tears down 50 of the top myths that typically accompany diabetes. From "Type 2 diabetes is not as serious as type 1" to "People with diabetes can't eat sugar." From "Women with diabetes shouldn't get pregnant" to "If my doctor says it's time for me to take insulin, I'm a failure". The author hits every single myth on the head, with the expert support of many of the who's who of the diabetes medical establishment (names in the list include Dr. Jovanovic, Dr. Kaufman, Dr. Polonsky and several more).
The book groups myths in six groups: common ones, medical myths, food myths, body fitness myths, psych myths and practical & practices myths. Each myth is followed by the truth behind it, a detailed discussion about why the myth is not true and a sidebar titled "Tips to Make You Tops" which gives you practical elements you can apply to help kill the myth in your own life.
Along with The Real-Life Guide to Diabetes this is one of the great practical books about living with diabetes I have read in quite a while. You can befriend the author through her TuDiabetes member page.
I owe you a debt of gratitude Manny to put out such a clear and forceful message about the value of the book. Thank you.
Is this book focused more towards type 2? I’m a type 1 and was just wondering…
