I usually write about economic matters, with some exceptions. This is a total break from that. It’s a book about my experience with diabetes 2.
If you have diabetes 2, prediabetes, or are worried you may get diabetes 2 (or you know someone in this situation), this book may help you. It is my account of how I have successfully managed my diabetes 2 for more than 13 years with minimal medicines, eating right, and strategic exercise. I have written this book because my diabetes doc suggested that I write my experience, and my initial posts on social media were widely welcomed.
I was diagnosed with dangerously high sugar levels in 2008. My diabetes specialist agreed to let me try to manage my diabetes 2 with entry-level medication (meant for low levels of diabetes), supplemented by changes in my diet and exercise. At that time, there was no professional to guide me on these changes. So, I figured it on my own.
What I eat does not include anything unusual or exotic. Of course, there are restrictions but nothing that prevents me from leading my normal life. I exercise at home without any expensive or unusual equipment. Overall, I am thriving, not just surviving!
If I had read something like this book when I was diagnosed with prediabetes, perhaps I could have avoided, or at least delayed, my slipping into diabetes. The book has no medical jargon (or advice), and is written in a reader-friendly manner.
Diabetes is a deadly disease that is on the rise. Perhaps it is one of the few medical problems that we can either avoid or manage by changing our lifestyles. I believe that each person has to figure out their own lifestyle change. What works for me may not work for you. That’s why the book does not offer any specific advice.
Instead, my idea is simple: If I, a normal human being who happens to have diabetes 2, can do it, why not you?
