  • Information

Diabetes used to be rare and clear. One boy in the school had Type 1 and a friend of a friend’s granny had Type 2. We now see adults being diagnosed with Type 1 and children developing Type 2. There are over 400 million diabetics world-wide – four times as many as in 1980. The vast majority of these have Type 2 – sometimes judged as a ‘lifestyle’ disease.

The traditional view of diabetes is that is it a “chronic and progressive” condition and that nothing can be done about it. Serious complications include loss of eyesight, amputations and death.

What our readers are saying

A must read for ALL diabetics and their health professionals.

A disturbing expose of medical science or dogma and suffering caused to diabetics.

Antoinette Stuckey

A very interesting book that challenges conventional dietary advice, much of which seems to have been based on assumption and making the evidence fit the theory. I was impressed by how some contributors challenged these theories at great cost to their careers and personal lives.

FJ Presland

This book constrains a selection of essays that challenge the conventional medical view of how diabetes should be managed. Some are written by people who have reversed their Type2 diabetes, other by people with Type1 who by choice of diet no longer get hypos (low blood sugar), while maintaining normal BG levels. Yet other essays are by doctors and researcher showing that what they were told at medical school is not the complete picture.
