Books and Links

Get ready for information overload.

Books

The books below are well worth reading. I benefited most from Gretchen Becker's book, and Bernstein also has a wealth of good ideas although his dietary ideas may be a little strict for some. It's a smorgasbord - I take what works for me, and leave what doesn't suit me. Jenny Ruhl has just published hers; it is very readable and has a wealth of useful and practical information well supported by scientific cites.

Available from your library, good bookstore or Amazon. No - I don't get a commission.

The First Year, Type 2 Diabetes, An Essential Guide for the Newly Diagnosed. Author: Gretchen Becker. ISBN 1-56924-646-0 (buy on Amazon)

Dr. Bernstein's Diabetes Solution, Revised and Updated, by Richard K, Bernstein, M.D.,ISBN 0-316-09906-6. (buy on Amazon)

Blood Sugar 101, What They Don't Tell you about Diabetes, by Jenny Ruhl, ISBN-13: 978-0-9647116-1-7. (buy on Amazon)


Magazines and Cook Books
All the magazines I've read on diabetes were only suitable for one thing - and they were too glossy to even be much use for that. The same applies to all "Diabetes Recipes" books and magazines. If you need a recipe book, look for a low-carb recipe book, not a diabetes one.


Links

I've listed some links below, but by far the most important one is Jennifer's Advice to The Newly Diagnosed. These are all links to that:



This is not an exhaustive list, but some, like Mendosa, have links to many others. Those which require registration have never sent me a spam or promotion.

I discovered that a lot of Dr Bernstein's book is available online at:

http://www.diabetes-book.com/index.shtml

Since his work is the basis of a lot of the low carb approach to diabetes management, I thought people might be interested in checking it out.
