The statistics are staggering. Thirteen million Americans have been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes; another 5.2 million don't know that they have it. Each year about 200,000 people die from its complications. But the good news is that Type 2 diabetes is largely preventable, if you know how to identify your risks.

Dr. Robert C. Atkins recognized that diabetes and obesity are twin epidemics, and that the way to reverse both is to permanently change the way people eat. The Atkins Blood Sugar Control Program (ABSCP), presented for the first time in this book, helps you identify metabolic signposts that indicate trouble long before the onset of Type 2 diabetes. If you already have the disease, the ABSCP offers you and your physician a strategy for weight management and blood sugar control, while minimizing exposure to drugs.

Atkins Diabetes Revolution is Dr. Atkins' legacy. This groundbreaking book tackles one of the greatest health challenges you and your family may ever face.
