Description

The time to make lifestyle changes is now!

More than thirty million Americans have diabetes. Another eighty-four million--more than thirty percent of the adult population--have elevated blood sugar levels that put them at risk for developing type 2 diabetes. For most of us, it takes a medical emergency to get us to make vital changes to our eating, exercise habits, and weight control. At that point it is often too little, too late. The terrible reality is that eighty percent of diabetics will die of a heart attack.

But that doesn't have to be you.

In Winning Your Blood Sugar Battle, Dr. Richard Furman shows you the three essential steps to keep your blood sugar under control, whether you have already been diagnosed with diabetes or are at risk. He carefully explains the latest medical literature, offers proven guidelines on what to eat (and what not to eat), and outlines an effective exercise program for keeping your heart healthy.
