  1. Wonderfully Insightful and Informative Dr Joyal hits the nail on the head in this well-detailed, unique, and insightful synopsis of the prevention and maintenance of diabetes. As someone who has many close friends with diabetes, I decided to give this book a try for nothing more than educating myself on this widespread disease. Dr Joyal has opened my eyes not only on how people with diabetes can prevent health complications but also on how to take care of myself with the correct balance of diet, exercise, and supplements in order to minimize my risk of contracting diabetes as well as other preventable diseases.The great thing about this book is that it is not solely for people with diabetes. Anyone looking to become healthier and are just sick of hearing about these fad diets that come and go can definately benefit from reading this. We all know that by eating appropriate portions of healthy food, incorporating a structured and focused fitness regime, taking supplements, and reducing stress are all important factors in becoming healthier. Dr Joyal takes it a step further and tells you WHY these factors are important and how, when all done together and structured, are vital in disease prevention and maintenance.As soon as I finished this book I gave it to a friend of mine with a serious case of diabetes. Since reading Dr Joyal’s book and implementing his suggested methods, I have noticed a dramatic change in his attitude, energy, and overall well-being.I would highly recommend this book for anyone looking for better ways to control diabetes or simply for the person looking to get in better shape and has questions about vital nutrients and food preparation.

  2. Entirely innovative What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Diabetes aptly portrays prediabetic states and diabetes itself as forms of accellerated aging. Although Doctor Joyal is tackling a complex disease process, his writing is easy to understand and his comprehensive approach to optimize metabolic health is entirely innovative. He emphasizes preventing glycation as a means to reverse the progression of prediabetic states and to reduce diabetes-related end organ damage. The multifaceted approach includes conventional medications but also proposes simple lifestyle modifications that have strong scientific support. The antiglycation eating plan includes specific recipes and preparation techniques. He explores the important and evolving role of natural supplements and presents time efficient programs for stress reduction and exercise. All too often physicians spout the vague mantra of “eat right and get more exercise”. This book offers specific, practical, and attainable measures to counter the downward spiral of glycation in diabetes, and I recommend it highly to patients and physicians alike.
