Publisher's Summary

From acclaimed author Dr. Jason Fung, a revolutionary guide to reversing diabetes.

Dr. Jason Fung forever changed the way we think about obesity with his best-selling book, The Obesity Code. Now he has set out to do the same for type 2 diabetes.

Today, most doctors, dietitians, and even diabetes specialists consider type 2 diabetes to be a chronic and progressive disease - a life sentence with no possibility of parole. But the truth, as Dr. Fung reveals in this paradigm-shifting book, is that type 2 diabetes is reversible. Writing with clear, persuasive language, he explains why conventional treatments that rely on insulin or other blood-glucose-lowering drugs can actually exacerbate the problem, leading to significant weight gain and even heart disease. The only way to treat type 2 diabetes effectively, he argues, is proper dieting and intermittent fasting - not medication.

This book could save your life

Dr. Jason Fung is changing the world one patient at a time. His first book, The Obesity Code, saved my life. Literally. I was a morbidly obese type 2 diabetic with no hope of reversing my fate when I stumbled upon the Obesity Code in July 2017. Nine months later, I am down 90lbs and no longer diabetic. Everything about my health improved since reading Fung's simple yet powerful advice.

This book is just as revolutionary, but focuses more on diabetes rather than obesity -- though Fung illustrates that both of these are just different manifestations if the same underlying disease. if you are living with T2 diabetes, you MUST read this book. You will be amazed at how quickly and effortlessly you can turn your life around. Even if you're NOT diagnosed T2D, your lifestyle may be putting you on a path to this deadly disease -- some estimate that up to 2/3 of the population are prediabetic or worse -- and this book will teach you how to halt that deadly progression.

They say that if it seems too good to be true, it probably is. This is one of those rare and wonderful exceptions to that rule.

Game Plan for Diabetes and Obesity Tx

Another wonderful and straight forward book by Jason Fung, MD. As a family doctor I see the ravages of diabetes every day in my patients from diabetes. Once you see an amputated appendage you never forget it. This book is my game plan for helping avoid the ravages of diabetes. I pre-ordered multiple copies and have given them to my medical colleagues already. Doctors need data! Thank you Dr. Fung for giving us the data to finally treat type 2 diabetes as the nutritional disease it as always been.

Excellent Book

Dr. Fung is truly changing the world and the practice of medicine.. including mine. This book should be mandatory reading for medical school and I recommend it to all of my diabetic and prediabetic patients.

Amazing Revelations

Don't be fooled by the title. This book is a must read for anyone that is concerned about improving their health or the health of their family. Even if you are not diabetic, you will learn something from this research.

The perfect sequel to “Obesity Code”.

Dr. Fung writes like he talks in his pod casts. Hard hitting and straight talking for layman and professional. Diabetes is a horrible debilitating and deadly disease that has been kept alive by organizations that put profit over people and are responsible for the pain, suffering and deaths of millions. Dr. Fung gives everyone a road map back to normalcy.
This book is the written cure for diabetes.

Don't want diabetes? Listen to this book.

As someone who had virtually lost hope in finding a way back to metabolic health and was getting worse after trying a number of diets and regimens, Dr. Fung's "The Obesity Code" semi-metaphorically saved my life and I can't count the number of people I have recommended it to. That said, "The Diabetes Code" stands head and shoulders above "The Obesity Code." This book is remarkable in the amount and quality of information delivered and the simple, easy-to-understand language of Dr. Fung. He makes complex physiology very accessible and actionable. Having read many of his blog posts and listened to podcasts and lectures by Dr. Fung, I had very high hopes for this book and it far exceeded my expectations. Absolutely fantastic!

Finally...the truth

I've had type two diabetes for 12 years. I have always resisted taking insulin. I was shocked when a friend told me her bariatric surgery got rid of her diabetes. So the fasting makes so much sense. I cant wait to see the results.

General Health

Dr Fung has cracked the code to good overall health which is simple and easy.
Diabesity, as he calls it, can be controlled and reversed by understand the roll of insulin and other hormones and is so easy to implement.
Thank you for enlightening the world.

Potentially life changing.

Dr. Fung has admirably learned from his own (indeed, virtually the entire medical professions') long established "mistakes" and very probably - through logical progression - developed a cure. Major congratulations are due!
