Dr. Bernstein’s Diabetes Solution A Complete Guide to Achieving Normal Blood Levels

Bernstein (Diabetes Type Two, Prentice Hall, 1990), a Type I diabetic, begins his book with testimonials from 14 patients praising his methods for controlling diabetes. His most radical departure from established medical practice is his diet plan, which recommends high fat, high protein, and a minimum of carbohydrates advice that conflicts with that given by the American Diabetes Association and the American Heart Association. Bernstein’s exercise regimen also differs from standard practice by advocating anaerobic over aerobic exercise. There is a brief overview of diabetes, and specific supplies and brand names of products for diabetes are recommended. Sick days, the emotional challenges of the disease, pregnancy, and sex are either not included or barely mentioned. Richard Beaser’s The Joslin Guide to Diabetes (LJ 7/95) is a far superior choice.
