Popular Books Get Face Lift

Controversial Diet Included

| Jan 1, 1999

Authors Biermann and Toohey strike again. This prolific diabetes duo has updated their supremely popular book, The Diabetic's Book: All Your Questions Answered. Praise for previous editions says that it is a down-to-earth, practical and upbeat guide anyone can understand.

June Biermannn has had diabetes for 31 years. She and her partner, Barbara Toohey, have cowritten nine other diabetes books and publish the newsletter, The Diabetic Reader.

This fourth edition still has all the necessary basics for type 1s and type 2s, but has expanded its coverage to include the latest clues to a cure, new products, including new oral medications for type 2, HMOs and the ADA's new diet recommendations.

In this edition, Biermann and Toohey, for the first time, touch the hot topic of the low-carbohydrate diet, because, as Toohey says, this diet "definitely seems to be a trend." The Diabetic's Book gives a fair assessment of the pros and cons, then invites people with diabetes to read other sources to make up their own minds.

"People are getting excited about the low-carbohydrate diet," says Toohey. "Some people are mad because, they think, 'Why didn't someone tell me about this diet before?' After years of being accused of cheating on the traditional diets, they now realize the problem was with the diets, not with them."

This latest edition costs $13.95 plus a $4.25 shipping charge. It can be ordered from Biermann and Toohey's company, Prana Publications, at (800) 735-7726.
