Dr. Berstein's treatment plan for diabetes (Type 1 in my case) is not for the faint-hearted but it is, beyond any doubt whatsoever, the most effective ever discovered. Bernstein, himself a Type 1 diabetic for fifty years, advocates a low carbohydrate diet, a multiple daily injection regime and an exercise regime. This regime stabilises blood sugars almost instantly and quite dramatically. I followed the traditionally prescribed 'high carbohydrate diet with two daily injections' regime until a year ago, and lived with all the horrors associated with it: severe hypos, highly erratic blood sugars, exhaustion, endless snacking, etc. One year on from following Dr. Berstein's regime and the transformation in my life and health has been quite dramatic. Twice this year I've had an HBA1C test done: first time it was 5.6; second time 5.2. My cholesterol levels have lowered and my consultant says I'm in great health. Bernstein's is a very tough regime: no bread, rice, potatoes, pasta, white flour, fruit, among other things, plus five daily injections. But it does work wonderfully, unlike the traditionally prescribed methods. If you really want to control this horrid condition and live a healthy normal life, or if someone you love has diabetes, then PLEASE buy this book immediately. I had tried everything and followed all the traditional advice and knew I was deteriorating. Now I'm healthier, stable, a thousand times happier, loving my work as a busy teacher and deeply grateful to this excellent man for his outstanding gift to Type 1 diabetics.
