Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Completely revised and expanded from the original 1987 publication, this edition succeeds at being simultaneously entertaining and informative. All three authors have written extensively on diabetes; both Bierman and Jovanovic-Peterson are themselves diabetic. Constructed mostly as a spirited dialogue between "Dr. Lois" and her well-informed coauthors, and often drawing on their own experiences as well as questions from readers of The Diabetic Reader newsletter, the text covers a wide range of concerns. Puberty, pregnancy, breast feeding and menopause are well-covered, and there are some surprising nuggets of information, such as how jet lag affects blood sugar levels or how shift work can impact insulin requirements. Especially valuable is the up-to-date drug information and the advice on getting good diabetic care from cost-conscious HMOs. Clear line drawings, 800-numbers for sources of helpful products and a well-annotated reading list augment the text. Essays on pregnancy for women with gestational diabetes and Type I diabetes conclude the book.

Format: Paperback
June Biermann and Barbara Toohey team up with Dr. Lois Jovanovic-Peterson to create the best question and answer book for the diabetic female. The book is divided into three stages of life. Each stage is categorized into developments common with the age group. There is even a special chapter about diabetes and pregnancy in the second life stage. Complications are discussed, but not emphasized. Living life to the fullest is the goal. Type 2 diabetes is also discussed briefly. The tone of the book is lighthearted and often funny. There are several antecdotes about life with diabetes and how to answer some of the questions a person is asked by well meaning friends or family. This book is a must for both the diabetic patient and her loved ones.

I FOUND THIS BOOK TO BE EXCELLENT FOR THE JUST INFORMED DIABETIC WOMAN. SO MANY DOCTORS JUST TELL YOU THE NEWS, HAND YOU A PRESCRIPTION AND YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN. I HAVE RECOMMENDED THIS BOOK TO MY PHARMACY AND HEALTH FOOD STORE, BOTH WHO SAY NEWLY INFORMED DIABETICS COME IN AND SAY THEY HAVEN'T A CLUE OF WHAT TO DO NOW.

Format: Paperback
I found the information in this book confusing at best and demoralizing at worst. It contains advice for pregnant women to keep their BG below 120- almost double what is normal for non-diabetic women. There's some very troubling advice given to women who wish to get pregnant and have damaged kidneys (ie no mention of stabilizing BG first, reversing the damage) and the implication that it's OK to give in to cravings if you have PMS as giving in can release stress (so it's OK to give in a eat a bag of cookies....??). If you're a diabetic woman, I would recommend other books to reverse the complications of diabetes before you get pregnant, and generally to understand the disease better, without wasting time on this one. The Diabetes Solution by Dr Bernstein is a much more effective, much more specific and helpful book with a plan of action that works, even if it does require some effort.
