Publisher's Summary

From acclaimed author Dr. Jason Fung, a revolutionary guide to reversing diabetes.

Dr. Jason Fung forever changed the way we think about obesity with his best-selling book, The Obesity Code. Now he has set out to do the same for type 2 diabetes.

Today, most doctors, dietitians, and even diabetes specialists consider type 2 diabetes to be a chronic and progressive disease - a life sentence with no possibility of parole. But the truth, as Dr. Fung reveals in this paradigm-shifting book, is that type 2 diabetes is reversible. Writing with clear, persuasive language, he explains why conventional treatments that rely on insulin or other blood-glucose-lowering drugs can actually exacerbate the problem, leading to significant weight gain and even heart disease. The only way to treat type 2 diabetes effectively, he argues, is proper dieting and intermittent fasting - not medication.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Good Book .Insightful and must read for everyone.

The Book tries to challenge the contemporary understanding of Diabetes Type 2 and makes a very winning argument in favor of general health and wellbeing of humanity which is under the constant threat of new age pharmaceutical companies that are driving today's treatment methodology in Diabetes.

Book of Hope for Diabetics

The concepts of central obesity and hyper Insulinamia are pathbreaking. The futility and ramifications of drug treatment for Type II Diabetes established. The efficacy of fasting and Low Carb and High Fat (LCHF) diet proved beyond doubt in this book. It reflects committed efforts of Dr Jason Fung to liberate his patients from the clutches of Diabetes. I would like to appreciate his commitment for human health and his courage to stand against the disease maintaining Phrama companies. I hope the doctors around the world would wake up from the comfortable sleep induced by Pharma companies. They should stand up for their profession if not for human welfare. Based this new scientific understanding, a health activist, Veeramachineni Ramakrishna started an LCHF diet movement for diabetes in Andhra Pradesh, India. The movement received overwhelming response from public.

Eye opener

Thank you Dr Jason, humanity needed such a book decades ago. Thoroughly enjoyed this book, each chapter had me asking one question, why dint this book come out sooner so we could tackle diabetes in our prior generations who are now victims of years of symptomatic treatments and probably suffered irreversible consequences already. Seriously wish and hope that the medical fraternity pays attention and revamps their outlook towards management of this large scale disorder. May God bless you doctor for all your hard work.

Don't want diabetes? Listen to this book.

As someone who had virtually lost hope in finding a way back to metabolic health and was getting worse after trying a number of diets and regimens, Dr. Fung's "The Obesity Code" semi-metaphorically saved my life and I can't count the number of people I have recommended it to. That said, "The Diabetes Code" stands head and shoulders above "The Obesity Code." This book is remarkable in the amount and quality of information delivered and the simple, easy-to-understand language of Dr. Fung. He makes complex physiology very accessible and actionable. Having read many of his blog posts and listened to podcasts and lectures by Dr. Fung, I had very high hopes for this book and it far exceeded my expectations. Absolutely fantastic!

Doctor lost 21 pounds & off of insulin in 2 months!

I am a Family Physician of 40+ years experience. I am Medical Director of a geriatrics clinic. My medical paradigm has been shaken and changed by the coherent fact based presentation of this book and the Obesity Code. I am also a diabetic who after 2 months of intermittent fasting and low carb diet have lost 21 pounds and am off of insulin! I would encourage physicians and patients alike to take this information seriously even though it varies from current “expert opinion” It is on a solid scientific foundation. Good things will happen!

This book could save your life

Dr. Jason Fung is changing the world one patient at a time. His first book, The Obesity Code, saved my life. Literally. I was a morbidly obese type 2 diabetic with no hope of reversing my fate when I stumbled upon the Obesity Code in July 2017. Nine months later, I am down 90lbs and no longer diabetic. Everything about my health improved since reading Fung's simple yet powerful advice.

This book is just as revolutionary, but focuses more on diabetes rather than obesity -- though Fung illustrates that both of these are just different manifestations if the same underlying disease. if you are living with T2 diabetes, you MUST read this book. You will be amazed at how quickly and effortlessly you can turn your life around. Even if you're NOT diagnosed T2D, your lifestyle may be putting you on a path to this deadly disease -- some estimate that up to 2/3 of the population are prediabetic or worse -- and this book will teach you how to halt that deadly progression.

They say that if it seems too good to be true, it probably is. This is one of those rare and wonderful exceptions to that rule.

This book saved my life! Goodbye type 2 diabetes!

This book literally saved my life, and was worth every penny. I'm so thankful for Dr. Fung and his research. I followed Dr. Fungs guidelines and immediately seen results in correlation with Dr. Fung's findings. Blood glucose levels dropped to normal levels, and I lost serious weight. (20lbs in one week!)
I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes 2 years ago. When diagnosed, my doctor told me diabetes was a chronic progressive disease. I was devastated and hopeless. Being diagnosed with this disease at only 28 years old and over 450lbs, I felt like my life was over and ready to give up. As two years went by my blood glucose levels increased, I was prescribed more medication, and more medication on top of that. I tried to reduce my calories and lose weight as my doctor suggested, but I had no results.
Desperate for answers, I started to do my own research and discovered this book. After reading it I was eager to make a change because everything Dr. Fung said made sence to me. Finally!
I now have my life back. I no longer have to worry about dying because of diabetes. I'm in control.
I would like to thank Dr. Fung from the bottom of my heart. I have truly gained my life back because of his finding and research, and for that I am grateful.

Game Plan for Diabetes and Obesity Tx

Another wonderful and straight forward book by Jason Fung, MD. As a family doctor I see the ravages of diabetes every day in my patients from diabetes. Once you see an amputated appendage you never forget it. This book is my game plan for helping avoid the ravages of diabetes. I pre-ordered multiple copies and have given them to my medical colleagues already. Doctors need data! Thank you Dr. Fung for giving us the data to finally treat type 2 diabetes as the nutritional disease it as always been.

Potentially life changing.

Dr. Fung has admirably learned from his own (indeed, virtually the entire medical professions') long established "mistakes" and very probably - through logical progression - developed a cure. Major congratulations are due!

A Book That Could Change Everything Diabetic

Wow! This book really moved me as a Type 1 diabetic, now with multiple health issues, after almost two decades of dealing with the blow of a full-on diabetic lifestyle.

Despite trying to follow all the advice given to me by health professionals, trying to eat well, exercising regularly, etc. I have disappointingly begun to witness my body begin to develop the complications of this condition. Now I'm being pushed this drug & that, to my horror and am eagerly seeking alternative answers.

The scientific evidence in this book is strong, to the point that I believe everyone (diabetic or not) could benefit from listening to it.

My only criticism is that this book seems to be very heavily orientated towards Type 2. I feel more mention of how the subject matter is relevant to Type 1 diabetes too would vastly improve the book. Some Type 1 listeners may be inclined to switch off after a while, feeling its not for them, but I'd say stick with it. Despite being Type 1 myself, I learned a great deal and only wish my health professionals had advised me in this manner years ago.

Congratulations Dr. Fung for your clear narrative, impressive research & dedication in this field. You give a huge number of people a sense of hope in the battle against a condition that is often portrayed as a chronic & debilitating disease. I feel much more able to take the fight to my diabetes and I hope you continue to write & lecture on the subject.

Lots of background and good scientific reasoning, but critically lacking in the HOW to practically follow an intermittent fasting plan and examples. Apparently you can pay $39/month to find out on his website....

Exceptional food for thought.

Primarily this is for diabetic patients, which I am not but there are so many messages in here that need to be taken on board by the the population at large.

Unfortnately a lot of people just do not want to heed this advice and we are sold more and more sugary products by the food giant. These big companies sponsor (with irresistibly large amounts of money) the medical research foundations to promote their products, with the findings being twisted to suit their needs. Take the breakfast cereal debarcle.

One thing that frightened me in the book was that it takes just a week of overdoing the glucose and fructose and you become insulin resisitant. Now I appreciate this is revesible but take the festive season gluttony fest and think 'how many people are at risk during this time.

I personally think the only way to get the message out there is You tube, blogs etc etc..... as all other ways have failed and we are living in a society that is moving towards if not already in a pre diabetic, obese state.

I personally hope that we will look upon sugar like alcohol and smoking in a few years tim, and then something will hopefully change, however it may be too late for many as this needs to be instilled into the minds of the young to let them grow into adults who have a health span as long as thier life span.

Rant over, enjoy the book.
