I am listing my favorite diabetes books, and others that are very popular among diabetics. If you click on these links, and then click on the books, you can read portions of each book.
(1.) Riva Greenburg is a wonderful author of diabetes books. Here are her two most recent masterpieces. Note the dates. Riva and I have communicated in emails and on the phone. She is a wonderful person. There is a link on the book page that tells you some impressive information about Riva. Her most recent book, "Diabetes Do's & How To's", was published in January, 2013. It's the only book of easy and practical action steps that tells you exactly what to do and how to do it to live healthfully with diabetes.
Riva's previous book is called "50 Diabetes Myths That Can Ruin Your Life: And 50 Diabetes Truths That Can Save It". This book disspells the 50 most common myths that tend to rule the lives of diabetics, "…such as: “You have to be fat to get diabetes,” “Eating too many sweets causes diabetes…" and gives you the life-saving truths!
(2.) Gary Scheiner has written a very popular book called "Think Like A Pancreas".The book gives a practical guide to managing diabetes with insulin. It is completely revised and updated. (Jan 24, 2012)
(3.) Ginger Vieira, has contributed so much to the diabetes world. She is a former record-setting drug-tested powerlifter, and a very wonderful author of two books. Ginger Vieira has lived with Type 1 diabetes and Celiac disease since 1999. Today, she is a freelance writer, and Wellness Diabetes Coach in her own busines. Ginger's most recent book, "Emotional Eating With Diabetes", is a guide to overcoming the many challenges around food that can develop in a life with a disease that revolves around what we eat.
Ginger's previous book is called "Your Diabetes Science Experiment". It is written for people who want to gain a deeper understanding of how the basic science of the human body impacts your blood sugar levels and your insulin needs.
(4.) John Walsh and Ruth Roberts have written books that are widely used by insulin dependent diabetics. One of their books is called "Using Insulin". It gives you everything you need for success with insulin.
Their book "Pumping Insulin" is for people who are using an insulin pump. This book helped me very much to learn the finer points of pumping. It is very widely used by many diabetics.
