    Liked the language

    I liked the way he talked about diabetes, but didn't insult my intelligence. He didn't spell it out in so simplistic terms that a 3rd grader could understand, but put it in staight forward language an average patient should be able to truly understand, comprehend and use!

    Stop Diabetes Now: A Groundbreaking Program for Controlling Your Disease and Staying Healthy

    Now I understand WHY I need to control my blood sugar. I am not a scientist, but this book made me really appreciate how much has been done for diabetes research.

    Stop Diabetes Now: A Groundbreaking Program for Controlling Your Disease and Staying Healthy

    This book did break down the science behind all the studies and made it easy for me to read. This book is clearly different from all the others. AND, the book did not suggest one diet over the other. In fact, the book promotes healthy eating and puts a focus on diet and exercise. What I liked is that the lifestyle program can be modified.

    Stop Diabetes Now: A Groundbreaking Program for Controlling Your Disease and Staying Healthy

    I now understand how to treat my diabetes, because I now understand the science behind the disease. The author makes it so easy to understand. Instead of just telling us why we need to do things for our diabetes, I now understand 'WHY' I need to do it. Great read, and more importantly, it does provide just the facts.

    Just the facts!!!!!!!!!!

    Translated the science of diabetes into a way I can understand it. Lots of books on diabetes, but this one cuts to the chase. Gets rid of the hype, and gives you the facts in a way I can understand it. Will change my life
