Riva Greenberg, recognized diabetes patient-expert, author, speaker and health coach, has lived successfully with type 1 diabetes for more than forty years.This book came from her talks with patients seeing how confused and bereft they are of the actions to take - and how to take them - to live a full, rich, healthy and happy life with diabetes.Riva's work and passion is an inspiration in my life and my diabetes goals. She is an excellent example of living one's best life with diabetes, and inspiring others to live their best life.
- An expert whose writing is authoritative and compassionate - Ginger Vieira
Looking for a straight-forward book filled with easy-to-digest tips on living well with diabetes? I highly recommend putting this on your bedside table. Each section reads quickly and clarifies confusion on so many areas of what we should be doing in diabetes management.Each “do” and “how to" are very easy to grasp quickly, the title chapters are a breaht of fresh air compared to the stiff and overly lecturing tone of most diabetes books, and there are hilariously poignant cartoons. Finally, Riva's knowledge and expertise is soundly evident.
From the Author
doesn't have to be
you do next.
What one small step
can you take today
to live with diabetes
a little better?
I frequently travel across the US, and to other countries, speaking to people with diabetes, and hear: "Can I eat fried chicken?" "What's the best thing to have for breakfast?" "My blood sugar's fine in the morning, why is my doctor telling me to take another pill?"
I hear confusion, which is understandable because diabetes is a complex, chronic condition that we patients, not our doctors, have to manage. I also see that the vast majority of people who have trouble managing their diabetes aren't lazy or unmotivated; rather they don't know what to do--and how to do it.
I wrote this book to answer the urgent need all of us have for simple, clear information about what to do to take care of our diabetes and how to do it. While you may spend up to a dozen hours with your health care providers each year, you spend more than 8,700 hours on your own, making daily decisions that affect your diabetes. Now, with this book, you have the ability to make those decisions smart and healthful.
