Diabesity, Dr. Francine Kaufman


If anyone knows the tremendous toll diabetes and obesity have taken on the lives of millions of adults–and increasingly children–who have become affected by diabetes, that would be Dr Francine Kaufman. She has tirelessly dedicated her life to advocating on behalf of patients with diabetes, making sure they have the best medical treatment available, researching possible cures, and trying to prevent the diabesity epidemic.

This is a book that everyone should read because diabetes is a disease that affects everyone. There are currently over 18 million diabetics in this country: chances are, either you or someone you love has diabetes. A 2000 study estimated that roughly 1 in 3 children will develop diabetes in their lifetimes: that could be your child if you don’t read this book and learn how to stop the epidemic.

When I was a child, I had the privilege of going to see Dr Kaufman for my diabetes care for 15 years. Now she has distilled all the insights gleaned from her many years of clinical practice and research into one highly readable, gripping, informative book. This book shows us that we can halt the epidemic if–but only if–we really make it a priority. KYM, California.
