This book came at the right time because I have been back and forth with doctors and being in the hospital because of my uncontrolled diabetes. My eyesight is suffering from it and there are days when I can't see at all.
The one thing I learned from this book that is so important is that carbs kill. There is a thing called Carbosis which is having an elevated blood sugar for a longtime. Carbs create high blood sugars that go on to other things. One phrase that kept coming back to me was "Blood - Sugar Blanche". BLANCHE stands for Blood -Legs amputated - Atherosclerotic - Nerve problems - Circulatory Problems - Heart Disease - Existing only because of Dialysis treatment. This had me thinking I need to make sure I stay away from carbs and re-exam what I eat and male sure I take my blood sugar everyday and eat healthy and exercise....more
