    DMBooks- as a mother of a TI child, I am very curious about how different diets work for those with T1. This book sounds very interesting!

    DMBooks This sounds like one to check out! I’m T2, but I’ve often found that T1 advice to be more useful, especially since I started on insulin.

    DMBooks-Looks like it would be worth reading. Always a struggle with me on what to eat. I am not a vegetable lover.

    DMBooks – I’m always curious on the negative side of eating low carb, and this book might provide me good insight :)

    DMBooks – since I have a daughter with T1D, a book like this would become very beneficial in the teenage years when diets typically become a problem. Would love to add this to my diabetes library.

    Allison wrote, ” Considering diabetes and nutrition are both such individual things, it makes sense to incorporate as much personal testimony as possible.”

    I think anecdotes (personal experiences) are one of the main way people make decisions. I think anecdotal data strongly influences doctors as well. The other side to the story is, what does research say. Interpreting research is so easily influenced by our biases.

    I wish there were a book that presented different diets with a dispassionate meta-analysis of the associated research. That way when I heard someone’s personal story of how a diet worked for them, I could go to one book and see a review of that diet’s associated research.

    DMBooks – As the parent to a newly diagnosed teen with T1D (who also happens to be a vegetarian that doesn’t like vegetables!!), I think this would be a fabulous read for her!

    Why is this a *womans* guide? There are men out there with diabetes, and guess what — they eat carbs, too.

        I believe there shouldn’t be a woman’s guide. Nor a men’s guide. Both sexes are in the same boat.

    Having just started reading real books on diabetes (I’ve only read blogs and articles so far) I find it very helpful to have some written rules about diabetes that you can go back to whenever you need. I’ve been meaning to read more on nutrition after establishing a base for fine-tuning my insulin so this would be a great book for me!

    Dmbooks – I am 53 and have had T1 for 46 years. I hate exercising just for the sake of it, and would rather walk my dogs than go to the gym. Plus I fear going low as I don’t feel it until I’m in the 40s or 30s. I favor a low carb diet but LOVE bread! If I don’t win it I will still buy this book!

    DMBooks Sounds like this addresses all the food issues I deal with every day. How I long for a way to end spikes without completely giving up all my favorite carbs – or combining them with SO much protein and fat (to slow down the carb absorption) that I end up with all my calories for the day in one meal!

    Sounds intriguing at least, and it never hurts to learn what other people have had success with, even if it doesn’t work for you specifically….

    DMbooks – As a new grad entering the health care field, I’d like to read this and share with my patients. On a daily basis I encounter many patients with DM that stuggle with managing diets. It is my hope that I may be able to give them more insights into meal planning besides the generic formulation taught in school/rotations.

    Hey there! I know this is kinda off topic however
    , I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a blog post or vice-versa?
    My website goes over a lot of the same topics as yours and I
    believe we could greatly benefit from each other. If you’re interested feel free
    to shoot me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you!

    Excellent blog by the way!
