Overview

The latest scientific research confirms that you can live well and long with diabetes without suffering from its more devastating health complications. Whether you have type 1 or type 2 diabetes, you have the ability to improve the quality and length of your life through physical activity, a positive mental outlook, and certain diabetes tools and medications. Now, the longest living people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes share the secrets that have helped them achieve longevity and wellness.

From interviews with more than fifty people who have thrived with the condition for as many as 84 years, diabetes authorities Drs. Colberg and Edelman distill their lifelong habits into fifty user-friendly, easy-to-adopt secrets. Featuring profiles of ten people who have each lived an average of 65 years with diabetes and practical advice for incorporating each secret into your daily life, this invaluable resource will inform, inspire, and motivate you to live well—and fully—to 90 and beyond.

Find out what some of the secrets are:

• Live first and be diabetic second
• Know your numbers and assume nothing
• Have kids if you want to
• Erase your mistakes with exercise

No matter what type of diabetes you have, you control the ability to escape serious complications (or control the ones you may have) and add years, if not decades, to your life.

What People Are Saying

Richard N. Podell
Inspirational-and practical. A must read that can make a difference in your life. (Richard N. Podell, MD, clinical professor, UMDNJ-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School)
John Walsh
John has had diabetes for over 50 years, so we totally enjoyed comparing our 'secrets' with other long-timers as well as learning some new tricks of the trade. Bravo to Sheri and Steve for telling the stories of those who face high risk and come out winners. We will pass their collected discoveries to others in our writing, speaking, and clinical care. 50 Secrets of the Longest Living People with Diabetes has our hearty recommendation for the inspiration it brings to everyone who desires a long and healthy life. (John Walsh, PA, CDE, and Ruth Roberts, MA, authors of Pumping Insulin (4th ed.), other diabetes books)
Paula Harper
Information about the inspiring individuals with diabetes was woven in with the fifty great secrets in a very entertaining and educational way. I endorse it to teach, train, and coach those of us with diabetes. (Paula Harper, RN, CDE, founder and president, Diabetes Exercise & Sports Association)
Gary Scheiner
Camaraderie is truly what soothes the diabetic breast. As I'm reading read through this book, my neck is getting tired from the constant nodding and saying 'Yes! Yes! This is what it's all about!' Who knows more about living successfully with diabetes than the people who have done it for so many years. After I've soaked up every word, I might be willing to share it with my patients. (Gary Scheiner, CDE, author, Think Like a Pancreas and The Ultimate Guide to Accurate Carb Counting)
Gretchen Becker
Most books tell you what the authors think you should be doing about your diabetes. 50 Secrets of the World's Longest Living People with Diabetes tells you what long-lived people with diabetes actually are doing about their diabetes…Their stories are inspiring as well as instructive. (Gretchen Becker, author, The First Year®-Type 2 Diabetes and Prediabetes)
Jeff Hitchcock
The advice that Sheri Colberg and Steven Edelman offer is excellent and will help everyone living with diabetes to live a better, healthier, and longer life. I would also say that much of their guidance would be well heeded by everyone, not just people with diabetes. (Jeff Hitchcock, Children with Diabetes)
David Mendosa
50 Secrets of the Longest Living People with Diabetes is full of inspiring examples…Indeed, diabetes is treatable and is more and more treatable all the time, while many other chronic diseases are not. This is another of the excellent and positive points that these two authors make throughout this important book. (David Mendosa, coauthor, The New Glucose Revolution What Makes My Blood Glucose Go Up…and Down?, and author, Losing Weight with Your Diabetes Medication)
Amy Tenderich
Encouraging, informative, and easy to read...this is my kind of diabetes book! If nothing else, you'll be delighted to discover how many of the secrets you've already mastered. (Amy Tenderich, journalist/blogger and coauthor, Know Your Numbers, Outlive Your Diabetes)
Aaron Vinik
While at the University of Michigan we developed the notion of 'patient empowerment' and 'taking control,' which Sheri Colberg and Steven Edeman have captured in a most elegant manner with case histories of people who have thrived for many years despite having diabetes. (Aaron Vinik, MD, PhD, director, Strelitz Diabetes Research Center)
