This is an accessible book for anyone wanting to find out more about diabetes. This includes type 1 diabetics, type 2 diabetics, the pre-diabetic, those worried that they might have diabetes, and the simply curious.

The book is written throughout in the "popular science" style which makes it easy to read but it is well researched and referenced. There is more science than I was expecting at the beginning of the book, but this is really about explaining what high blood sugar is doing to your body. It's easy enough to skip over these sections but I'd recommend you not to. To the reviewer who criticised the book on the grounds that he just wanted to be told what to eat, the answer is, eat a low carbohydrate diet. That means, no sugar, no white bread, no coffee. Good chocolate is okay though. Patrick Holford has a book on that, as well as a nice cookbook.

If you are a type 1 diabetic, I'd suggest you also read Richard Bernstein's Diabetes Solution which contains a lot of practical information for caring for diabetes, as well as more detailed science.

Both books advocate a low carbohydrate diet as the means to normalising blood sugars. It's scandalous that the medical establishment still does not do the same.

The book is probably a little longer than it needs to be, but nevertheless I'm giving it 5 stars for presenting a complex subject in an accessible way.

This book helped me change the downward direction in which I was going. Having Type 2 diabetes, my insulin use was gradually creeping upwards. At Christmas I was using 95 units a day. I started following the advice in the book and within a few days I was reducing the amount of insulin I needed to inject. I am currently down to 60 units 2 months later. I have not been as strict as the book recommends but have lost almost a stone. I am eating less food and taking more exercise, walking and doing resistance exercises. I think eating the smaller meals with healthy snacks in between stops the great hunger pangs which lead to overeating. I need to lose much more weight but I keep going back to the book to check my eating habits and keep going in the right direction. If I don't, I risk blindness or a leg amputation. Not much of a choice really.

If you have little understanding of how and why diabetes happens this book will prove useful to you. I am not diabetic and would prefer to stay that way, and again a helpful book if you are in the same mental space as me. The conventional wisdom of calorie controlled eating is seriously flawed as is the model of controlling/ avoiding diabetes via this method. Keeping your carbs low is the natural human way of controlling excess blood sugar production from damaging your body. Again Holfords book indicates this but then gets into glycemic loading which may work for you but has too many carbs for my liking.

If you go for this book -I also suggest reading Zoe Harcombe's," Why do you over eat" and/ or "Stop counting calories" and Blood sugar 101 by Jenny Ruhl for a more balanced perspective.

If you - or some-one you know has diabetes, or are diagnosed as 'high risk' - buy this book, and inform yourself.
There's so much one can do, to prevent diabetes, or slow it down - without resorting to meds.
Patrick Holford is a fantastic clinical nutritionist, and writes in a clear articulate no nonsense style.
I recommend unreservedly

When ordering this book I thought there might be lots of useful stuff in there specific to diabetes which hadn't been in other books. However, on reading it I discovered that the vast majority of the text was directly lifted from the GL Diet Bible which I already have. There were one or two new recipes but other than that nothing I hadn't already read. Useful if you haven't got the Diet Bible but if you have don't waste your money.

Every GP and diabetic nurse in the country should read this. It's scary the misinformation that National Health trained staff are giving people. This is like a bible to diabetics. Read this, adhere to this, and you will either reverse or control your diabetes in a way you never imagined possible. The National Health doctors and nurses need to be brought up to date with current findings. How scary, how outdated and how dangerous their advice is.

I bought this book for my father-in-law who suffers with type 2 diabetes. I had already lent him a copy of Patrick Holford's 'Food Is Better Than Medicine' which touched on diabetes 2 and how it can be reversed. He had his bloods taken and was told his sugars were very high so he referred to the section in the book and by doing one simple thing daily, his levels have evened out. The Dr was stunned by the change. I read 'Say No To Diabetes' and definitely there are further ways to deal with your diabetes or even reverse it.

Dr Patrick Holford is one of the U.K.'s Leading authority on health. His book "Say No to Diabetes" is the definitive book on reversing or even eliminating the onset of diabetes. He shows why exactly diabetes happens in the body. If you read and study his amazing book and follow his advice and act on it. I am a recently diagnosed Type 1 Diabetic and I have to take insulin injections 4 times a day and taking several medicines per day. So Dr Patrcik Holfords advice is essential to living a long and healthy and disease free life.
I definitely would highly recommend this book.
