There is.

Dr. Bernstein's book, Diabetes Solution, much of which can be read on his website Read Online - Diabetes Solution - Dr. Bernstein's Diabetes Solution. A Complete Guide to Achieving Normal Blood Sugars. Official Web Site Much of the information would be for those who take insulin, but a lot of it still applies to T2s as well, especially the effects of diet.

Jenny Ruhl's book, Blood Sugar 101, all of which can be read on her website www.bloodsugar101.com I have the book because I'd rather read books than computer screens. This site/book is geared more toward T2s.

While the books were helpful in the beginning for me to to increase my understanding of diabetes, the every-day working out of my personal control method (which, for me, is diet) and keeping me motivated comes from this forum and interacting with other diabetics who are doing what it takes to keep their blood sugar under control - and thriving.

I have a much broader knowledge and understanding of diabetes and it's many aspects from reading the threads and posts and linked studies here on DF.

VeeJay that has been my experience also. I was just curious. The one conclusion I have reached and I am almost certain most doctors will not agree, is that the way the disease works is very much dependant on the individual and so management and treatment also needs to be very individually tailored.
