Diabetes Bookshelf



From the Battling Books Diabetic Bookshelf, a few reading essentials.

Some of these you have seen here over the last few weeks, some are new to our shelf. If you’re like me you keep your library card maxed out and have a wish list on Amazon that is a mile long.

I confess while I read a lot of non-fiction I am a huge fiction reader. I’ve been searching for weeks for adult fiction featuring a diabetic as the protagonist. Have you read any that you’d care to recommend? I’d love a heads-up.

If not perhaps it’s time to write one.

The Healthy Carb Diabetes Cookbook by Lara Rondinelli and Jennifer Bucko (2008)

The New Glucose Revolution Shoppers Guide to GI Values 2008 by Dr. Jennie Brand-Miller and Kaye Foster Powell (2007)

Cheating Destiny: Living With Diabetes, America’s Biggest Epidemic by James S. Hirsch (2007)

The Insulin Resistant Diet–Revised and Updated by Cheryl R. Hart (2007)

The 4-Ingredient Diabetes Cookbook by Nancy S. Hughes (2007)

And for those of you who have a dog-eared copy of Diabetes for Dummies, 2nd Edition by Alan L. Rubin, there’s good news. The 3rd edition will be out August 4, 2008.

Let’s us know what your favorite books are from those listed here or your personal library.

Anyone who comments between now and Friday, July 18 at 8 pm, MST will be entered in a drawing for two free books courtesy of the folks at Lifestyle Center of America, who sponsor the Diabetes Challenge.

and the companion cookbook-

And don’t forget –Dr. Stuart Seale and Dr. Franklin House of the Lifestyle Center of America are offering The Diabetes Challenge–a contest allowing one diabetic the opportunity to go through an all-expenses-paid, year-long treatment plan, focusing on the root causes of the disease through lifestyle changes and cognitive behavior therapy.

For someone diagnosed with diabetes, The Diabetes Challenge could be a life-changing experience. To sign up for the contest, and to see certain restrictions, visit the site and click on “Take the Challenge.”

    I’d love to be entered!

    And Tina…I have a book featuring a brittle diabetic who loses her career as a government sniper due to diabetic neuropathy. The story is called To Govern the Night. I’m not sure if that title will stay the same though once it contracts.

    Tina, a novel featuring a hero or heroine with diabetes is a great idea, especially in a Young Adult book.

    The Carb cookbooks look great, even if you don’t have diabetes.
