Take Charge of Your Diabetes: A diabetes book that describes a completely new approach to treat diabetes.

Though not all physicians are aware of the scientific advances that prove it, most diabetics can now avoid insulin injections and prevent or reverse the deadly complications of their disease. The key is treating the root problem-insulin resistance-instead of focusing on controlling blood sugar levels, an outdated practice that puts patients at greater risk for heart attack and stroke. Take Charge of Your Diabetes showcases the unique plan Dr. Zaidi has developed in treating thousands of cases of Type 1 and Type 2 successfully. Dramatically different from traditional treatment protocols, the program includes an easy-to-follow diet, a moderate exercise and stress-reduction plan, vitamin and supplement recommendations, and a prescription medication regimen that reduces the number of medications as time goes on instead of the traditional treatment model: stepping up doses as diabetes progresses.

Practical Paleo: A Customized Approach to Health and a Whole-Foods Lifestyle

Our great-grandmothers didn’t need nutrition lessons—then again, they weren’t forced to wade through aisle after aisle of packaged foods touting outlandish health claims and confusing marketing jargon. Over the last few decades, we’ve forgotten what “real food” is—and we’re left desperately seeking foods that will truly nourish our bodies. We’re disillusioned with the “conventional wisdom” for good reason—it’s gotten us nowhere.

Achieving optimal health without calorie-counting, diet foods, or feelings of deprivation has never been easier. Practical Paleo explains why avoiding both processed foods and foods marketed as “healthy”—like grains, legumes, and pasteurized dairy—will improve how you look and feel and lead to lasting weight loss. Even better—you may reduce or completely eliminate symptoms associated with common health disorders!

Practical Paleo is jam-packed with over 120 easy recipes, all with special notes about common food allergens including nightshades and FODMAPs. Meal plans are also included, and are designed specifically to support:

immune health (autoimmune conditions)

blood sugar regulation (diabetes 1 & 2, hypoglycemia)

digestive health (leaky gut, IBS & IBD)

multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue syndromethyroid health (hypo and hyper – Hashimotos, Graves)

heart health (cholesterol & blood pressure)

neurological health (Parkinson’s & Alzheimer’s)

cancer recovery

fat loss

athletic performance

a “squeaky-clean” Paleo approach

Practical Paleo is the resource you’ll reach for again and again, whether you’re looking for information on healthy living, delicious recipes, or easy-to-understand answers to your questions about how a Paleo lifestyle can benefit you, your family, and your friends.


Staged Diabetes Management: A Systematic Approach

Staged Diabetes Management continues the four-decade tradition of the International Diabetes Center by providing clinical pathways that improve care practices. SDM uses evidence-based medicine to address the prominent issues of primary care diabetes management. It supplies practical solutions to the detection and treatment of diabetes, its complications and such new areas as the metabolic syndrome, pre-diabetes and type 2 diabetes in children.

Completely revised and updated, the text reviews the fundamental basis of diabetes management and then addresses treatment of each type of diabetes and the major micro- and macrovascular complications. 

Written for primary care, it is organised in such a manner as to allow the clinician to learn about each distinctive type of diabetes as well as to see the areas of overlap. Issues range from classification, screening and detection to starting a therapy and long-term management of hypertension complicated by diabetes. Educational, nutritional and behavioural issues are also covered. Using DecisionPaths as a way to organise clinical decision-making, each chapter can stand alone, yet they are integrated (as is clinical practice). Each DecisionPath is structured so that therapies can be started, adjusted and maintained. Each decision point is clarified in the text along with the scientific basis for the decision.


Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus:: An Evidence-Based Approach to Practical Management (Contemporary Endocrinology)

The chapters have been written by an interdisciplinary team of scientists and medical professionals. Such an approach emphasizes the need for collaboration in the care of any individual with diabetes and in the effort to find new therapies for the disease. This reference provides practical guidance in a single resource.


Atkins Diabetes Revolution LP : The Groundbreaking Approach to Preventing and Controlling Type 2 Diabetes

Atkins Diabetes Revolution will help you:

  • Find out if you have the metabolic syndrome
  • Identify your risk for diabetes as soon as possible
  • Make permanent lifestyle changes to normalize the underlying metabolic imbalances that lead to Type 2 diabetes
  • Reduce your chances of suffering a heart attack, stroke, and even some cancers
  • Reduce your risk of heart disease by lowering your triglycerides while increasing your HDL (“good”) cholesterol

Read by Sara Krieger

Two colleagues of the late Dr. Robert Atkins take on the obesity epidemic’s deadly twin: type 2 diabetes. Dr. Mary Vernon and Jacqueline Eberstein, RN, adapt the carb-cutting, fat-allowing Atkins nutritional approach as a preemptive strike against this fast-growing killer. Diabetes–defined here as a condition in which glucose or blood sugar is above the normal range–is viewed as a preventable problem. “What we hope we have created in this book is a realistic and practical guide to wiping out type 2, one person at a time.” Since obesity is the major risk factor for diabetes, they begin with the “fat lie” (i.e., the belief that fat causes obesity) to voice the Atkins mantra: low fat means high carbs and high carbs are broken down into sugar. With a convincing mix of essay/picture testimonials, clinical studies, quizzes, checklists, and menu planners and recipes, Vernon and Eberstein make the case for diet and lifestyle changes to alter the metabolism of those at risk for diabetes. They have done a yeoman’s job of translating Atkins’s medical nutrition advice into a step-by-step program. One can quibble about their missionary zeal or the omnipresent eggs in the breakfast sample menus. At times, the scientific data are overly detailed or hidden within a quiz. Thankfully, there is a spot-on summary of the book’s paradigm-busting ideas in the appendix. — Barbara Mackoff

Health Informatics: A Patient-Centered Approach to Diabetes

The healthcare industry has been slow to join the information technology revolution; handwritten records are still the primary means of organizing patient care. Concerns about patient privacy, the difficulty of developing appropriate computing tools and information technology, high costs, and the resistance of some physicians and nurses have hampered the use of technology in health care. In 2009, the U.S. government committed billions of dollars to health care technology. Many questions remain, however, about how to deploy these resources. In Health Informatics, experts in technology, joined by clinicians, use diabetes–a costly, complex, and widespread disease that involves nearly every facet of the health care system–to examine the challenges of using the tools of information technology to improve patient care. Unlike other books on medical informatics that discuss such topics as computerized order entry and digital medical records, Health Informatics focuses on the patient, charting the information problems patients encounter in different stages of the disease. [Chapters discuss ubiquitous computing as a tool to move diabetes care out of the doctor’s office, technology and chronic disease management, educational gaming as a way to help patients understand their disease, patient access to information, and methodological and theoretical concerns.] We need both technologists and providers at the drawing board in order to design and deploy effective digital tools for health care. This book examines and exemplifies this necessary collaboration.

The Type-2 Diabetes Breakthrough: A Revolutionary Approach to Treating Type-2 Diabetes

In “The Type 2 Diabetes Breakthrough,” Frank Shallenberger, M.D., presents his revolutionary approach to treating type 2 diabetes. He documents his extensive research, which shows that the root of diabetes is a decrease in energy production and fat metabolism, an integral part of diagnosing and treating diabetes. He then shows how to correct the factors that lead to this condition to stop the disease in its tracks. At the core of his treatment protocol is his unique perspective on nutritional guidelines for diabetes for optimal energy production. In fact, Dr. Shallenberger explains why the Ameican Diabetes Association’s dietary guidelines are nothing more than a recipe for keeping the disease. Another unique component of his treatment approach is an emphasis on optimizing liver function. Though conventional medicine focuses on the pancreas as the organ responsible for diabetes, Dr. Shallenberer has proven that the liver is the primary organ of importance in most cases of diabetes. And, of course, Dr. Shallenberger considers exercise to be an integral part of any successful treatment or prevention plan for type 2 diabetes, but not just any form of exercise will do. The exact level and type of exercise necessary is based upon the results of the Bio-Energy Test. In fact, Dr. Shallenberger’s research has shown that most diabetics who exercise are working out too hard to get well! Rounding out Dr. Shallenberger’s program are vital stress-reduction and sleep recommendations to improve blood sugar control and overall health. Despite all of conventional medicines’s attempts at treating and preventing diabetes, its incidence continues to soar. It’s time for a new-proven-approach. It’s time for “The Type 2 Diabetes Breakthrough”.
