Have you heard of the book titled: "Death to Diabetes"?

This book explains the pathology of Type 2 diabetes at the cellular level — so that you can understand how the disease really works. This book identifies the top 5 super foods to eat and the top 5 foods and chemicals to avoid (and why). It also addresses supplements, detoxing, exercise, glucose testing, how to work with your doctor, spiritual health, and support systems.

I have read a lot of diabetes books, and this was the first one that really attacked the disease, broke it down, and provided an easy set of procedures and steps to follow.

The approach used by this engineer is ingenious! And, it's easy to follow and to determine what to do — especially when things go wrong! Most diabetes books assume we know what we're doing and assume success. But, this engineer does not assume that we will always be successful. He even predicts that we are going to fail, but he says not to panic as he addresses each type of failure! — and what corrective actions we need to take.

This 400-page book is very comprehensive! It addresses heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, obesity, kidney health, eye health, neuropathy, and other ailments — because, as the author states, all of these ailments are CONNECTED!

The author also provides several different approaches to fight the disease, including detox therapies, nutritional therapies, and other methods. In fact, you don't have to do all of the steps he suggests —just SOME of them!

I have had a lot of success with my diabetic patients — once I put my ego to the side, and accepted that maybe an engineer may know more than a doctor. Of course, it appears to help that this engineer almost died of a diabetic coma. so, it appears he was very motivated to get better.

But, his motivation didn't stop there. It seems that his mother (a great woman) and his unbelievable daughter played key roles in his recovery and encouraging him to write this great book.

The book also addresses the emotional and spiritual sides of our health, and that they're connected to our physical body and its health problems.

And, I just love the title of the book: "Death to Diabetes" — which I discovered is also the name of the author's website.

I sincerely believe that every medical doctor should read this man's book. Every radio show and TV show should interview him. Every newspaper should write a story about this man, and his daughter, and his mother. Everybody should tell their friends about this inspirational story.

By the way, the author's name is Dewayne McCulley.

The Diabetes Doc

p.s. This author just doesn't quit! — He now has a Version 3 of the book that he released this year because he did more clinical research after he released the original book (Version 1) in 2006. And, there's a DVD/CD for people who don't like to read.

I have been wondering about this book. Thanks for telling us about it. This coming week I plan to buy a copy due to your review. Sounds as if it will be a valuable addition to my Diabetes literature.

We were given the book Understanding Diabetes 11th Edition when our daughter was diagnosed in February. I was diagnosed myself in 2002 and I find this book to be helpful to me as well as our daughter, I too did not take care of myself until I got a wake-up call when our daughter was diagnosed so we now learn side by side.

Good for you for finally deciding to take charge and get control of things. It's not as bad as you might think, truly. And this site is a good place to start, as there's a lot of good information availabe. You really don't want to pay the consequences associated with ongoing denial. Good luck!

The one and only book I have is the Diabetic Bible. I'm newly diagnosed so it really helped me. You have dealt with this for a while so you probably know all this information. I would like some good advise on some more advanced books too! Thanks for posting, Angie
