This is a must read for anyone with diabetes (Type 1 or Type 2), or friends of relative of someone with diabetes. Dr. Bernstein isn’t just another talkin’ head, he is a type 1 diabetic himself who eats low carb and uses low carb diets and nutrition as part of his treatment protocol for his type 1 and type 2 patients.

As both a doctor and a diabetic, he has the understanding of the relationship between insulin, glucose, meds and nutrition necessary to halt and reverse the progression of diabetes. Dr. Bernstein’s Diabetes Solution provides practical advice for diabetics looking to improve their condition, reduce their injections, and/or get off their medications. What’s more, he has some strong opinions on commonly prescribed diabetes medications that diabetics should avoid taking at all costs.
