Product Description
Adam Brown’s acclaimed diaTribe column, Adam’s Corner, has brought life-transforming diabetes tips to over 600,000 people since 2013. In this highly actionable guide, he shares the food, mindset, exercise, and sleep strategies that have had the biggest positive impact on his diabetes – and hopefully yours too! Bright Spots & Landmines is filled with hundreds of effective diabetes tips, questions, and shortcuts, including what to eat to minimize blood sugar swings; helpful strategies to feel less stressed, guilty, and burned out; and simple ways to improve exercise and sleep. Along the way, Adam argues that the usual focus on problems and mistakes in diabetes (Landmines) misses the bigger opportunity: Bright Spots. By identifying what’s working and finding ways to do those things more often, we can all live healthier, happier, and more hopeful lives. Whether you are newly diagnosed or have had type 1 or type 2 diabetes for over 50 years, this book delivers on its promise: practical diabetes advice that works immediately.

The Ketogenic Diet for Type 1 Diabetes: Reduce Your HbA1c and Avoid Diabetic Complications

The Ketogenic Diet for Type 1 Diabetes: Reduce Your HbA1c and Avoid Diabetic Complications
by Ellen Davis MS (Author), Keith Runyan MD (Author)

Before the invention of insulin, type 1 diabetic (T1D) patients were advised to avoid sugar and starch (carbohydrate) and to eat a very low carb, ketogenic diet to control blood sugar. In contrast, modern advice is to eat carbohydrates and treat the resulting high blood sugar with large doses of insulin.
