  • Small doses of medication (only if necessary)

What is Diabetes?

Diabetes is a disease wherein the body does not properly produce the appropriate amount of insulin. Insulin is an essential hormone that helps convert food into energy. Without insulin, the body is unable to survive and function. There are two different types of diabetes:

  • Type 1 – Often referred to as “childhood” or “juvenile” diabetes, Type 1 is not solely a problem for children, as adults may also suffer with Type 1 diabetes.
  • Type 2 – Type 2 is the most common form of diabetes, where the body does not produce enough insulin to process food into energy, or the cells ignore insulin.

Living with Diabetes and the Diabetes Diet

While there is no cure for diabetes, most individuals suffering with this disease can treat the symptoms by maintaining a healthy diet and exercise regimen. To help individuals with diabetes live a healthier and more normal life, Dr. Bernstein’s book is intended to help provide tips and advice to deal with various diabetic concerns. Additionally, his book is intended to help support individuals with either Type 1 or Type 2 Diabetes.

Diabetes Diet will provide tips and support on topics such as:

  • How to stop changes in blood sugar levels
  • How to steady glucose levels
  • How to reduce insulin intake
  • How to live a “normal” lifestyle like those who do not suffer with diabetes

Nutrition and Food

Diabetes Diet contains both nutritional information in addition to explanations of what foods and choices can be harmful for diabetics, in addition to what food choices will benefit diabetics. Dr. Bernstein’s plan specifically focuses on achieving stable blood sugar levels by maintaining a low-carb lifestyle. To guide individuals, Dr. Bernstein also includes 100 low-carb recipes paired with eating tips and advice.

Treatment and Prevention

Diabetes can result in a variety of harmful health issues and concerns, such as weight gain, increased blood pressure, and damage to various organs and blood vessels. In regulating blood sugar levels, as Dr. Bernstein’s book suggests, individuals can help prevent and/or reduce current symptoms and diabetic concerns. While the exact cause of diabetes is unknown, some studies suggest that both genetics and environment play a role in developing diabetes.

Dr. Bernstein’s Background

As the author of the text, Dr. Bernstein connects with readers by sharing his own experiences as an individual dealing with Type 1 diabetes for over 62 years of his life. Added to this, Bernstein provides information on his research and experiments that have helped him develop his program and strategies for success.
