Big Pharma can suck it.
Truth about my condition and hope for the future.
yes to both
Doctors maintain us on their drugs without a cure. With diet exercise and good supplements you can live a very different life. Declare war on diabetes and use this book as a battle plan.
I love learning about the universe and our place in it by listening to Audible.
The book can be listened to rather than read, but it obviously makes it harder to skip sections. The author does a very good job at explaining the processes within the body such as what diabetes is and such. The book is even relevant to somebody without diabetes and just wants to know about how parts of the body works.
The author is really into supplements, herbs, and vitamins and such and explains how the body uses them and seems to recommend over a hundred.
I'm not too keen on supplements and am more interested in diet. I only listened to half the book and just got tired of listening to more and more about supplements.
I'm not completely bad mouthing this book and it definitely could be useful to someone with diabetes. I'm extremely leery of studies based on sample sizes of 30 or less people which she sites multiple times. I did learn a lot about how the body and its organs work and the book (the half I read) is worth it for that.

Vital health information
n/a - this is a medical book without leading characters.
Narrator has a high pitched voice and speaks in an unnatural cadence. Her slow pacing and odd inflections make her narration sound like she is reading a book to kindergartners. I did not finish the book because the narration was too irritating.
I regret not finishing it, because the author's content is valuable to me... I may end up buying it in book form instead. Perhaps Amazon would let me exchange the audiobook for the Kindle book.
not applicable - it would be a documentary.
Sometimes I wonder why people choose the narrators that they do.
