Four Books About Diabetes You Should Read

Posted on August 08, 2020

Thousands of members of DiabetesTeam connect with one another and read each other's stories to gain perspective and validation about living with type 2 diabetes. Another way to discover how to live better with diabetes is through books written by people who have this condition. We combed through member book recommendations and collected a list of the most popular.

1. The Diabetes Code: Prevent and Reverse Type 2 Diabetes Naturally by Jason Fung
In his number 1 best-seller in diabetes health, Dr. Fung argues that type 2 diabetes is, in fact, reversible. Proper nutrition and intermittent fasting is a safer and more effective way to treat and prevent diabetes than insulin-dependent medications.

2. Dr. Neal Barnard's Program for Reversing Diabetes: The Scientifically Proven System for Reversing Diabetes Without Drugs by Neal Barnard
This newly updated diabetes Bible highlights success stories from those who have reversed the progression of their diabetes. With it comes a step-by-step guide for you to do the same.

3. Bright Spots & Landmines: The Diabetes Guide I Wish Someone Had Handed Me by Adam Brown
Brown provides us with an easily actionable guide for eating, moving, thinking, and living in order to see immediate improvements to your health, no matter how long you have been living with type 2 diabetes.

4. Think Like a Pancreas: A Practical Guide to Managing Diabetes with Insulin by Gary Scheiner
Written by a diabetes educator, this is an evidence-based guide to treating diabetes with insulin by learning the mechanisms of your body and matching it to your lifestyle.

Check out some book recommendations and favorites from Members of DiabetesTeam:

"I'm currently reading a book called Best Self, which I'm finding very helpful in my thought process. It's not a book on diabetes, it's more of a self-help book."

"This article by Dr. Jason Fung explains just what you are dealing with and what to do about it. Good luck and much success on your journey."

"I just read a great book called the Obesity factor. It said that research shows that it is your Insulin level and creatine levels that also determine the body weight your body is set at. It was an interesting book by Dr. Fung. It was recommended by one of my doctors and wasn't a hard read."
