Overview

Despite what you might have heard, diabetes is not a lifelong condition.

It does not have to shorten your life span or result in high blood pressure, heart disease, kidney failure, blindness, or other life-threatening ailments. In fact, most diabetics can get off medication and become 100 percent healthy in just a few simple steps. In The End of Diabetes, Dr. Joel Fuhrman shows how you can prevent and reverse diabetes and its related symptoms and lose weight in the process.

The End of Diabetes is a radical idea wrapped in a simple plan: Eat Better, End Diabetes. While the established medical protocol aims to control diabetes by limiting your carbohydrate intake, monitoring glucose levels, and prescribing bottomless doses of medicine, Dr. Fuhrman believes this long-standing approach to fighting diabetes is wrong—and possibly fatal.

Designed for anyone ready to enjoy a healthier and longer life, Dr. Fuhrman's plan is based on a single formula: Your Health Future (H) = Nutrients (N) / Calories (C). Foods with a high nutrient density, according to Dr. Fuhrman, turn our bodies into the miraculous, self-healing machines they can be, which results in significant weight loss, improved health, and, ultimately, the end of diabetes and other diseases.

In engaging, direct, and easy-to-follow language, The End of Diabetes supplies the science and clinical evidence to prove that diabetes, heart disease, and high blood pressure are not inevitable consequences of aging. They are reversible and preventable. This simple and effective plan offers great food, starts working right away, and puts you on a direct path to a longer, better, fuller, disease-free life.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Diabetes has become an American epidemic: In 1958, 1.5 million were diagnosed with the disease; today nearly 26 million suffer from the malady. Epidemic or not, it need not be a death sentence or even a lifelong condition. Dr. Joel Fuhrman's The End of Diabetes charts a course to prevent and reverse pre-diabetes and diabetes with an eating plan. For those with Type 2 Diabetes, his program can first reduce medications and then eliminate all meds within three to six months. People with the more serious Type 1 condition will likely experience fewer highs and laws and require less insulin.

    highly suspicious that 4of 5 reviews were given 5 stars, no details and submitted anonymously. This looks like the author or publisher came on and posted these reviews in order to falsely hype the book.

    Lot of Good Stuff

    As I read this book, so much of what Dr. Fuhrman presented I could recall my doctors stating. So much was incorrect from those doctors. My other skepticism was the name of the book, The End of Diabetes. I have been insulin dependent for 20 years, and have been told my body (pancreas) does not produce insulin, so this is a quack. Well, he puts it out there, if you are type 1, you will always need insulin, type 2 maybe not. So he gained some of my confidence from those statements. Furthermore, by following some of his direction, my insulin usage is reduced. Now, if I can break the habits of 50+ years of living, and follow more of his direction, I can see where my usage can reduce greatly. I may never be off insulin, but the requirements can be substantially lowered.

    It is well worth the read. Even better if it is followed.

    This is an excellent book.

    My understanding from doctors was that once you have this disease, you have it for life. Not true. Get the book.

    I can tell you that I am diabetic type 2 and following "EAT T LIVE" by DR. Fuhrman I stopped taking 2 types of insulin and my blood pressure dropped to normal ranges. My blood sugar was as high as 500 at one point and following the diet and exercising it dropped to between 110 and 125. I was able to stop taking insulin in less then a week. It is a vegan type diet so it may not be for everyone but it worked for me. I also dropped 25 lbs in 2 months. Honestly I haven't read this book yet but it has to be as good as the last one if not better. It is targeted to Diabetics where the last one was not.

    I do not have diabetes, but friends do.... so I was looking into

    I do not have diabetes, but friends do.... so I was looking into some things. Heard Fuhrman on PBS and he made sense imho.  
    As a point to clear up -on page 9 of his book, (I flipped through the preview) it says he is talking about Type 2 diabetes.... but really
    healthy eating is always good, right? Not sure if it is in this book but he presents GOMBS   Greens, onions, mushrooms, berries/seeds
    as the healthy ingredients you need daily....But I think most can agree this is not new information....

    Once again. People are forgetting the difference between Type 1

    Once again. People are forgetting the difference between Type 1 Diabetes (Insulin-dependant) and Type 2 (insulin-resistant). There is no cure for Type 1, and it is IN FACT a lifelong illness.

    Be more clear in your descriptions. And stop watching Dr. Oz.

    You really can recover from Diabetes

    Dr Fuhrman has done a good job on this book. Very encouraging. My husband has Diabetes but by complying to this eating plan he no longer has indications of it as far as all tests are concerned. His A1c is consistently around 5.6. He is not on medication for Diabetes and has gone way down in his Blood Pressure medication. We have been on this plan for about 2 and 1/4 years.

    A very informative and healthy way to live

    This is a very informative new way of life, yes if you are type 1 this does not end diabetes as is stated many times in this book, but really helps get it under control in a natural and healthy way. I would recommend this book to anyone struggling with Diabetes. I believe this is a must read for health care providers that take the drugs are the only way to treat this disease approach, how wrong they are! This will not be a popular approach due to current eating habits of the average individual. As I am loosing weight my numbers are coming down to near normal, hopefully in a few months I can reach my goal of little or no drugs and a healthy weight again after so many years as a plus size.

    Definately a must read!

    I purchased this book for a friend who is pre-diabetic and who had blood sugar levels of 276. Within 5 or 6 days of following Dr. Fuhrman's advice her sugar levels dropped to 176, and with another two weeks her levels were in the 150's. Two months ago I ordered a bundled package of books and dvd's from my local public television station where he was giving a series of lectures as part of the station's fund raising campaign. I've lost 15 pounds and feel very good. I was impressed by the science behind Fuhrman's nutritional advice and because it made sense to me. I am not affiliated in any way with Dr. Fuhrman or his business and I stand to gain nothing form this review, except perhaps feeling good about spreading the word about a dietary approach that might help someone else become healthier.

    Highly recommended worth the read of this valuable information

    This is the most well explained eating plan for diabetics. I am a Registered Nurse with 0ver 30 years of long term experience and I wish I had this information years ago to help my clients enjoy life without medications or at the least with less medications to control diabetes and it's damaging affects. The body is made to heal itself and when given a chance it does a good job. The life long eating plan described here is based on excellent science. I have been on the plan for over a month,since reading the book I decided to see how I did before recommending it to others. I have lost weight, not once have I been hungry or craved junk foods and I feel terrific, better than I could have imagined as I started this trial, now it will be my lifelong way to eat.
