Book Description

22 Jun 2006 New Glucose Revolution
Dr. Jennie Brand-Miller and Kaye Foster-Powell — authors of the New York Times best-seller The New Glucose Revolution,— and David Mendosa, a leading diabetes journalist, answer the most frequently asked questions about blood glucose levels. They address a wide range of concerns, correct common misconceptions, and educate how best to monitor and control glucose levels. Among the questions addressed are: What is a normal blood glucose level? What can I do to bring down my blood glucose levels when they're high? Can being stressed really have something to do with my high blood glucose? Which carbohydrates will raise my blood glucose the least? What is the glycemic index? When I crave something sweet, what should I have? This book is for everyone with type 1 or type 2 diabetes, prediabetes, those who experience blood sugar lows (or highs) during the course of a day, people clinically diagnosed with hypoglycemia or hyperglycemia, those with the metabolic syndrome or Syndrome X, and everyone interested in taking preventative measures to preserve good health. An indispensable guide, this book is for those who want clear, scientifically-based information about the connection between food, exercise, weight, and blood glucose levels.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Comprehensive 12 May 2007
By J. Beggs - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The information in the book was very helpful to me. I am 61 years old and have pre-diabetes. I need information on carbohydrates and foods that have a high glycemic index. This book is all I need to point me in the right direction for healthy eating.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent format, clear concise information! 15 May 2008

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've had diabetes for close to 15 years, but I read explanations in this book that answered questions my physician hadn't made clear in all that time.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent reference book for understanding my BGL fluctuations 23 July 2009
By Clifford Newman - Published on Amazon.com
I have studied this book thoroughly three times now and it has enhanced my in depth understanding as to why my BGL readings fluctuate from day to day. Every diabetic needs to have this comprehensive reference book on their bookshelf and to study it thoroughly. This sort of knowledge mitigates a diabetic's concern about day to day fluctuations in their BGL's.

5.0 out of 5 stars Straight Answers 28 Oct 2012
By K. B. Hottle - Published on Amazon.com
Unless one has a scientific/medical perspective, understanding fully the details of glucose in the blood can be intimidating. Dr. Brand-Miller approaches the topic from the perspective of the patient, not the doctor. A question and answer format narrows the focus of each topic. As a pre-diabetic, I found her explanations both clear and concise.

4.0 out of 5 stars Glycemic Index vs. blood glucose levels 8 Sep 2012
By countryside - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The glycemic index is an interesting concept, but for those with diabetes or prediabetes, glycemic index is not foolproof. The index was created using normal people. Those of us who have whacky systems, something that is has a low glycemic value may send out blood glucose through the roof. Interesting read, but somewhat misleading for that reason.
