Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
04/22/2013
Greenberg (The ABCs of Loving Yourself with Diabetes) cheerfully gives readers the tools needed to live well with diabetes. The author forgoes scientific details to focus on day-to-day living, e.g., easy to digest tips that include Food Do's, Medical Do's, Fitness Do's, and Attitude Do's. ""Quick-Starts”” at the end of each chapter offer specific suggestions for carrying out the author's advice, and worksheets provide templates for working with doctors to manage diabetes. Much of the advice is nothing new: make healthy food choices, take medicine when and as directed, ask questions during doctor's visits, exercise five days per week, and develop a support network. However, here it is all in one place, in friendly, accessible prose. Throughout, Greenberg encourages readers to be patient, stay positive, never sweat setbacks, and take small steps toward larger goals. With references for further information and an enthusiastic foreword by Dr. Michael Dansinger (an adviser on TV's The Biggest Loser), Greenberg's book provides diabetes patients with helpful advice and encouragement to better manage their health and their lives.
