Busting the Diabetes Myth
Busting the Diabetes Myth is my latest book. Packed with up-to-date information about how you can reverse type 2 diabetes and prediabetes – with personal accounts from people who have done just that.
The first myth is the one that says that type 2 diabetes is a condition that just gets worse over time, and that you will need more and more medication to control it. That is what we used to think. However, the science has evolved, and we now know that type 2 diabetes can be reversed (or ‘put into remission’).
The next myth says that if you have type 2 diabetes, it is your own fault. Wrong! The number of people with type 2 diabetes has tripled around the world – in every country – over the past twenty years. That increase has been driven by massive changes to the food around us – with huge increases in ultra-processed, high sugar and high calorie junk foods and drinks.
So, if you can revert to a healthier diet of a few decades ago, you can increase your chances of reversing type 2 diabetes or prediabetes. The chance of remission is greatest for prediabetes and in the first year or so after diagnosis of type 2 diabetes. But it is never too late to improve your health and even if you have had type 2 diabetes for many years, making changes to improve your diet can help you lose weight, come of medication, and possibly achieve remission. This book will take you step by step through the changes you can make that will help you reverse type 2 diabetes or prediabetes.

Take Control of Type 1 Diabetes
Take Control of Type 1 Diabetes is written for everyone with type 1 diabetes and their loved ones and carers. My aim in this book is to share my experience of helping people manage type 1 diabetes over thirty years – and the huge amount they taught me about the challenges of living with the condition. Over that time, the technology available to support people with type 1 diabetes has advanced significantly, so that we now have not just insulin pumps but also glucose monitors as well as connected systems that bring us a step nearer to an artificial pancreas. But there is so much more to type 1 diabetes that glucose numbers and technology. This book unpacks the psychological aspects of type 1 diabetes and why support is so needed, not just for the person with type 1 diabetes but also for their loved ones. It also provides all the key information you need to effectively manage type 1 diabetes.
And some food for thought – or thought about food. While it is up to each person to decide their own eating pattern, I explain how you can experience much smoother glucose levels by avoiding sugar and large portions of carbohydrate – with the added bonus of requiring less insulin and in many cases losing weight.
