According to the American Diabetes Association’s 2011 National Diabetes Fact Sheet, 25.8 million children and adults totaling 8.3% of the population have either type 1 or type 2 diabetes. Growing up around type 1 diabetes I know that it does not have to take control of your life and that you can eat many of the same foods and enjoy the same activities as those without diabetes. With that in mind and World Diabetes Day on November 14, I thought it would be good to highlight some of the books we have on recipes and new information and approaches to diabetes.
“Delicious Dishes for Diabetics” by Robin Ellis is a large print book we have that includes abundant recipes for type 2 Diabetes.
“The Mayo Clinic Diabetes Diet” has five good habits to follow and five bad habits to break to help manage both your diet and diabetes.
“The Essential Diabetes Cookbook” by Antony Thompson is full of flavorful recipes from around the world and also identifies hidden sugars in foods.
“The Diabetes Manifesto” by Lynn Crowe and Julie Stachowiak, Ph.D. is about making small changes to help control your diabetes and was written by Crowe who was diagnosed with type 1 when she was twelve.
“The End of Diabetes” by Joel Fuhrman, M.D. has a new radical approach to diabetes by reversing the disease through high nutrient foods.
“The American Diabetes Association Complete Guide to Diabetes” is considered the most reliable guide to all things concerning diabetes.
