The Diabetic BibleMar 22, 2007
By P. Hogue
My mother was just diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes and she had a million questions which I couldn't seem to find sufficient answers to on-line. I purchased this book and she's been reading it for the past week and says it has answered every question she had about diabetes and how she should be eating. She's going to be talking to a dietitian soon and wanted to have a general understanding of the disease. She highly recommends this book to anyone with diabetes.

My Bible tooMar 28, 2007
I got this book as a present when I was diagnosed with Type II Diabetes and I have found the information in there invaluable. It is easy to understand, well written for the lay person and most of all has simply awesome recipes in it.
I have had friend and family diagnosed after I was and I have gotten each of them this book. Make a great beginning to any diabetic library.

This book is well worth the money!!Nov 13, 2008
By Amazon Customer
I got diagnosed with type 2 diabetes about 2 months ago. I wanted to know more about diabetes so I got this book. It's very informative on what diabetes is(very detailed) It's written in a clear manner. It has information on how the different diabetes medications work, it has a nutrient counter(which basically tells you how much carbs are in certain foods which is good to know), the complications that might happen if you don't get your glucose under control, why you must test frequently, and of course recipes. If you buy one book to help you understand being a diabetic chose this one!! It's the best one I've seen so far. I gave this book 4 stars because on pg. 73 it says this"To know what food causes your glucose to rise eat what you want, in whatever amount you desire." This is not good advice because if I did this my glucose would be over the 200 range. But still all in all it's a great book and I'm glad I bought it.
If you are looking for easy diabetic recipes I really like Dawn Hall's Busy People's Diabetic Cookbook. The recipes are really good.

Good & BadApr 23, 2012
Fast delivery & arrived in perfect shape. First half of book is full of information regarding diabetes. This would be good for someone newly diagnosed & needing information. The recipes aren't common' everyday recipes, probably wouldn't have all ingredients on hand. Does have a wonderful list of many common foods & complete nutrient counter for each food (not just carbs). The list is helpful for learning individual nutrient count for foods. I will use/am using the nutrient counter the most. Unless you have time to fix the more complicated recipes & don't need all the information in the 1st half of the book, I would pass on this book.

Should be taken off the marketJun 26, 2014
By Betty M. Landfried
When I first opened the book and read a couple of pages, I thought I was going to get information I need and I have to research on the internet to find how to treat this horrible disease of Diabetes. However, the more I read the more depressed I became. I then turned the recipes. I was appalled. Most of them included flour which is a definite "no-no". Many of them included sugar; it seems that the writers did not know that corn is one of the worst sugars you can put in your body and those cute little chocolate chip cookies have sugar, flour, and the cute little chocolate morsels on top. I have to stop. I looked to see when this book was published and it was the later part of the 20th century. Many things have changed regarding diabetes and if you want to live a longer, healthier life, please find a more up to date book that won't send you to an earlier grave.
