The Diabetes Book was previously published as "Living on a Tightrope: Coping with Diabetes" ******************************************************************************************************************* Hall of Famer Ron Santo was a diabetic who starred for the Chicago Cubs in the 1960's. These were the dark ages of diabetes care, and Santo struggled with his disease in secret. His amazing story illustrates the unique problems of living with diabetes and helps show the incredible progress that's been made in treating it since then. One thing hasn't changed: old wives tales and incorrect common "knowledge" are so rampant that millions of people believe things that simply aren't true. This includes many diabetics and it's even worse among the general public. This can result in genuine fear, a naive disregard for its seriousness, or anything in between. The Diabetes Book is easily readable and uses compelling real-life stories to explain practical realities to diabetics, those who love them, and those who worry about it. It inspires everyone - diabetic or not - to pursue strong, healthy lives."

It's a mess out there. Obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and inflammatory diseases are all on the rise. And even though it seems everyone has answers, incessant sounds bites in the daily news and magazine articles offer little more than superficial, generic advice. Combined with clever marketing intended primarily to sell products, this chaotic and fragmented advice results in a confusing, and typically incorrect, guide to being healthier.How does a person know what's right and what's wrong? How do we separate fact from carefully crafted half-truths? What can we, as individuals, do to be healthier and how can we avoid the most common diseases that plague us today?Don't Die Early is a remarkable framework to guide any of us towards a more aggressive approach to our own healthcare. No matter our age or condition, Don't Die Early is a plan of wellness and longevity, written for the average everyday person who no longer wants to be at the mercy of their provider but wants to take control and become the healthiest that they can."In Don't Die Early, Rocky Angelucci explains the actual science of diet and health in clear, simple language anyone can understand. If you're confused by all the conflicting health advice in the media, read this book. By the time you finish it, you'll probably know more about nutrition and health than your doctor." -Tom Naughton, creator of documentary "Fat Head"

Imagine easily managing your blood sugar, effortlessly gaining the right amount of weight during your pregnancy, and giving birth to a beautiful, healthy baby. This can be you!

In Real Food for Gestational Diabetes, prenatal nutritionist and diabetes educator, Lily Nichols, RDN, CDE, CLT, sets the record straight, offering revamped carbohydrate recommendations and exercise guidelines based on the latest clinical research. You can have gestational diabetes and have a healthy baby. Lily will show you how.
