The Diabetic's Handbook has been available through Borders and Books A Million, but has had to be ordered from most stores. Amazon.com now has it in stock and gives a discount on price and shipping; but you have to type the name of the book and author in the search box to find it. (Diabetic's Handbook by Thomas E Nelson).
What I learned from the Handbook has enabled me to gain control of my diabetes, and understand it better than I ever though possible. I have lost 70 pounds, cured a fatty liver, lowered my cholesterol, blood pressure and triglycerides, rebuilt my immune system, eliminated parasites and Candida overpopulation, cleansed my intestinal tract, kidneys,and liver, re-hydrated my body, and most important, I have gone from 6 oral medications plus two insulin injections per day (60 units), to one half dose of Metformin and insulin only if needed (less than 20 units per day). I have also stopped the progression of neuropathy. I have reduced the plaque in my arteries by over 60% and continue to work on it. I now live with confidence that I will not suffer the consequences of diabetic complications.
I cannot overstress the importance of educating yourself about diabetes. Your doctor and educator cannot possibly cover all of this in the brief moments that you spend in their office. You have to do it yourself. I have, whenever I have some extra cash, purchased as many as 25 of this book from the publisher (at a volume discount) and have given copies to diabetics that I encounter that cannot afford to buy a copy, or I feel desperately need it. My fear is that since the economy is starting to improve, that I won't be able to get the better pricing.
