Dr. Bernstein's "Diabetes Solution." It is fantastic. It teaches you all about Diabetes and how to live a healthy life and avoid diabetic complications.

Hi Roe72,
Here are the 2 books that helped change my lifestyle and caused me to have "normal" health readings/levels. AND I have no financial interest whatsoever in either book. I've listed them in my order of importance.

1. Dr. Stefan Ripich's "The 30 Day Diabetes Cure" is easy to read, understand and is fascinating. It cost me $57, shipping included. It’s a large book packed with valuable information & well worth the $57. When you buy the book, they also send you 9 special bonus PDF files of facts, recipes, exercises, etc. that can help diabetics. The book contains all kinds of advice, vitamins & supplement recommendations that fight diabetes & reputable companies that manufacture them (Not all vitamins & supplements are created so your body can actually use them - some just pass on through, unused.), recipes, mental & physical suggestions to help us reduce stress and get in both mental & physical shape, etc., etc..

Dr. Stefan Ripich ND, CNP is both a Naturopathic Dr. (ND) - healing the natural way without prescription medicines AND a Certified Nurse Practitioner (CNP) – also trained in traditional prescription medicine. He does recommend seeing your Dr.. Since my Dr. said I was “pre-diabetic” I’m trying this natural method without prescription drugs & after 10 months, it’s working for me with everything regarding diabetes showing normal. I lost 40 lbs. & my cholesterol & blood pressure are now normal.

Dr. Ripich believes in our body’s natural ability to heal, IF we do the correct things. He has a 30 day plan, with each day’s plan being a little different by adding things, but building on the previous day’s plan. This approach gradually guides you in changing your lifestyle and eventually defeating or dramatically lessening diabetes. He says IF you continue his plan for the rest of your life, you will see permanent and positive results. I have for 10 months now and it’s actually common sense and fun. It does take discipline but I’m now much more healthy, energetic and feel wonderful. To me, the discipline involved in my lifestyle change has been well worth it. I miss junk food less and less.

2. Another book that was suggested to me from a member here is Stop PreDiabetes Now by Jack Challem. I’ve found it to be a valuable supplement to Ripich’s book. I ordered this book “used” from for $4, including shipping.

I hope you have the same success as I'm having. :o)

A book, no, not really.
But do some Internet surfing, there is tons out there at your fingertips.
So what aspect of diabetes do you want to read about ?
