Diabetes-Free Kids
A Take-Charge Plan for Preventing and Treating Type 2 Diabetes in Children
With Mary Friesz, RD, PhD; Avery, 2005

Foreword by Jerry Mathers, "The Beaver"

The onset of type 2 diabetes (formerly “adult onset”) in the younger set was almost unheard of a decade ago, but today one in three diagnosed with type 2 is a teenager…or younger. This explosion of type 2 diabetes in our youth is frightening to parents and health care professionals alike. This book explains why this epidemic is spreading and how to stop it in its tracks.
  • Prevention and control of type 2 diabetes and its health consequences
  • Causes and diagnosis of obesity, pre-diabetes, and type 2 diabetes in youth
  • Nutritional strategies to control body weight and reverse diabetes
  • Blood sugar responses to physical activity
  • Strategies and tips to easily increase kids’ daily physical activity
  • Strategies for increasing structured and unstructured physical activity even for the most overweight kids
  • Oral medications, insulin, and supplements for diabetes treatment in children
  • No other book focuses on both the control and prevention of type 2 diabetes in youth and gives specific strategies that will help diabetic and pre-diabetic children alike. Unlike a fad diet book, this book will be an invaluable resource for years to come in the control and prevention of type 2 diabetes in youth.

    Reviews of Diabetes-Free Kids:
    ”An essential book for those who want to take control and fight back against diabetes.”
    Francine Kaufman, M.D., Director of the Comprehensive Childhood Diabetes Center at Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles, professor of pediatrics at the University of Southern California, and author of Diabesity

    “As someone with diabetes and a father of three, I am deathly afraid of where our society is going and the implications for our future generations. Parents, educators, society, and the media have a huge role to play in rehabitualizing our way of life to stop the diabetes epidemic. Diabetes-Free Kids is a great primer to teach us what we need to know to raise a healthier generation of Americans.”
    Howard Steinberg, CEO and Founder of dLife - For Your Diabetes Life
