Diabetes is a growing national health crisis. It's a serious disease where the body's ability to regulate blood glucose is impaired. There's no cure, but it can be managed through diet, exercise, and medication to control blood sugar levels. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), over 100 million Americans are living with diabetes or are pre-diiabetic (a condition if untreated leads to type 2 diabetes). Diabetes can be prevented. See your doctor to learn how to reduce your risk. Here are some new resources in the collection to help you with diabetes management.
Dr. Jason Fung forever changed the way we think about obesity with his best-selling book, The Obesity Code. Now he has set out to do the same for type 2 diabetes. Today, most doctors, dietitians, and even diabetes specialists consider type 2 diabetes to be a chronic and progressive disease--a life sentence with no possibility of parole. But the truth, as Dr. Fung reveals in this paradigm-shifting book, is that type 2 diabetes is reversible. Writing with clear, persuasive language, he explains why conventional treatments that rely on insulin or other blood-glucose-lowering drugs can actually exacerbate the problem, leading to significant weight gain and even heart disease. The only way to treat type 2 diabetes effectively, he argues, is proper dieting and intermittent fasting--not medication.
Prediabetes can be scary, but it's also an opportunity--an opportunity to "reset," to improve your health, and to get yourself in better shape than ever. Let Prediabetes: A Complete Guide show you how! Nearly 10 million people in the United States have been told by their doctor that they have prediabetes, with tens of millions more estimated to have prediabetes and not know it. In fact, the latest numbers from the CDC suggest that nearly 1 in 3 adults currently have either prediabetes or diabetes. These are alarming numbers, and finding out that you are that one out of three can be even more alarming. Shock, denial, and confusion are not uncommon reactions. But there is a flipside to learning you have prediabetes. It's scary, but it also means you've caught the condition just in time, before it's too late. Prediabetes does not mean you will develop diabetes. There are actions you can take to improve your health. Prediabetes: A Complete Guide, will reveal to you in detail what these actions are are and empower you to find the healthy eating and lifestyle changes that work best for you to help you achieve your health goals.
