I know it’s been awhile since I’ve done a must read episode and that’s simply because I haven’t read a book that I felt was compelling enough to feature, until now. I got ahold of this book and have been recommending it to many of our clients because it’s that good - The End of Diabetes by Dr. Joel Fuhrman.
I know, diabetes is scary, lots of people have it, lots of people are susceptible to it and most people think the only thing you can do about it is take lots of medication. Of course the way things are set up in the medical system doesn’t help, because that’s how most doctors manage it with their patients, they prescribe drugs like metformin and insulin, which in most cases does help someone with Type 2 Diabetes control their blood sugar, but what makes matters worse is this gives someone with diabetes the false sense that everything is okay, because the numbers on their glucometer say everything is okay, but the reality is it’s only a bandaid solution that in the long run makes the situation much, much worse and if you’re a Type 2 diabetic that requires insulin it’s the beginning of the end for you and that’s a harsh reality that most people aren’t willing to face. If you have Type 2 diabetes you’re at an increased risk of having a heart attack and getting kidney disease, both of which have the negative side effect of death. There’s also the less deadly, but still severe increased risk of nerve damage which will make it harder to walk and hold things in your hands, as well, amputations and vision loss are also more likely to happen if you have diabetes. That’s how the book starts, well it’s a summary of how it starts, but I think you get the gist of it.
