Drugs are not very effective at preventing the complications of diabetes, including heart disease, blindness, impotence, amputations, and kidney damage.

In The Blood Sugar Solution, Dr. Mark Hyman shows you how."―Dean Ornish, MD

"I have either reviewed or read hundreds of nutrition and health books over the past thirty years as a professional in the field. Many of these books have touched upon the topic of blood sugar and diabetes. It is Dr. Hyman's book The Blood Sugar Solution, however, that has struck me to be the perfect balance between helping the reader to understand the revolution that is occurring in the science of blood sugar and chronic disease with the 'news to use' for the reader to successfully apply this breakthrough information in their own lives years before it becomes common knowledge. The questionnaires in this book engage the reader in a way that connects their lives to health solutions in a very unique manner."―Jeffrey Bland, PhD, FACN, FACB, Founder, Institute for Functional Medicine

"Hyman's book is mindful, comprehensive and impeccably organized...An avalanche of vital information and advice from an enthusiastic wellness expert."―Kirkus Reviews
"THE BLOOD SUGAR SOLUTION is a highly informative but, thankfully, also a very accessible book for both professionals and the laypersons...

So many excellent ideas on how to lower your blood sugar, and lose weight.
Following this routine you will improve your life and the length of your life.
Individuals that are Diabetic know if you control your blood sugar you will have a better quality of life and a longer life.
You have only to look at the difference in former President Bill Clinton to see that it works.
I was overwhelmed with the number of questions given to evaluate present health and there are very few people I know who would not score off the charts and start to believe they were in imminent danger of hospitalization from some of the evaluations. However, once past Part 1, the advice given was balanced, practical and encouraging. I enjoyed learning about the natural supplements available and which foods were more toxic than others as well as the section on taking action to be more aware of health dangers in places of work, learning, worship and health care. Many of the recipes included in the meal plans look fantastic (Minty Hummus ' yum) and the website has many resources and links for further education.
While a little extreme in some areas, I was pleasantly surprised by a more reasonable approach to health and wellness. I will be passing this book along.
I give this book 4 stars out of 5.
I received this book free from Hachette Book Group. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own
His mention of leaky gut and importance of bacteria is important as well as many other ideas. Nowadays people are bacteria-phobic which is dangerous for our health.
A lot of his suggestions mirror natural or holistic ideas. Nice to see a Doctor with the combination of old ideas proven by young science.
I listened to the audiobook version which was well done.
