Blood Sugar Blues: Overcoming the Hidden Dangers of Insulin Resistanceby Miryam Williamson
Synopses & Reviews
A vitally important new book about a widespread condition were just beginning to understand
An estimated 20 percent of Americans (55 million people) are insulin resistant—and most of them don't know it! Their high carbohydrate intake is causing their bodies to become immune to their own insulin, and the resulting high blood sugar levels are increasingly linked to diseases and disorders, from Type II diabetes and heart disease to Syndrome X. Medical journalist Miryam Williamson, herself afflicted with insulin resistance (IR), draws on the latest medical studies and reports, explains the links between IR and each condition, and offers essential advice on making lifestyle changes that can control or even reverse IR.
For those who are insulin resistant, "Blood Sugar Blues" is a passionate and highly informed guide to better health and a clarion call for easily accomplished lifestyle modifications.
