    1 thought on “Diabetes Rising: How a Rare Disease Became a Modern Pandemic, and What to Do About It

    1. Dan Hurley takes an investigative reporter stance on tracing the history of diabetes with a personal insight to the disease, having lived as a Type 1 Diabetic himself for decades As a father of a two year old with Type 1, I found the information presented both educational, devastating, and frustrating In terms of the educational value for anyone who deals with this monster on a daily basis, I learned about the history of the disease and the particulars of management one line comments like That [...]

    2. If you think you know all you need to know about Diabetes and what causes it, I strongly recommend you give this book a read and realize just how complex the subject really is This rising disease goes beyond the simple Fat Man s disease it has been so commonly labeled Dan Hurley, a type 1 diabetic himself, takes a deep dive into the statistics regarding the rise of diabetes, then drives right into the variety of possible causes currently under research, and finally concludes with a in depth disc [...]

    3. This book interested me as someone with type 1 diabetes who appreciates information about my condition that is sophisticated than the average diabetes magazine or blog but less technical than scientific journal articles However, it didn t really meet that need for me Let me tell you why Before I go on, I should say that I skipped the chapters purely about type 2 diabetes 4, 11, and 13 First, it doesn t make sense to write a book as opposed to a blog or some other updatable medium about the cur [...]

    4. Ever since I heard Dan Hurley on NPR s Talk of the Nation and he said that frequent low blood sugars was the symptom of a HEALTHY diabetic, I knew I had to read this book, if only out of appreciation for him spreading this public service announcement He talks about living with type 1 in a way I ve been waiting for for years realistically, and recognizing that complications, especially severe lows, are unavoidable if you are keeping your sugars in a healthy range So, as a type 1, the book made me [...]

    5. Disclosure I only read the very beginning of this book and decided not to finish it I felt led to believe that it would be an objective piece of stellar journalism, but from the get go it seemed really biased and relied on manipulation of facts.Example in the prologue he talks about the rate of new diagnoses of type 2 diabetes in kids growing by enormous leaps in recent years, then tries to impress upon us how crazy this is when compared to the decrease in DEATHS caused by cancer and heart disea [...]

    6. This book describes the rise of diabetes, both types, over the last century until it now has the status as a virtual pandemic It discusses possible causes of the rise and medical approaches to the disease As one of my daughters has suffered from type 1 diabetes since age 10, this topic is of particular interest to me I found the book immensely readable, and both fascinating and troubling My only frustration with it is that, in some of the statistics presented not all, but some , it is not always [...]

    7. Very well written, like a mystery, a whodunit of medicine The sugar , my grandmother called it Diabetes is much less publicized than cancer but probably as dangerous, needs good PR advocacy campaigns just as AIDS and breast cancer have had in their heyday Its almost as if you have diabetes, especially Type 2, you want to be in the closet about it The history of multiple hypotheses on diabetes basic nature is a classic in medical history, which shows how elusive it is to cure a complex disease wh [...]

    8. Awesome, informative, insightful I recommend this to everyone, not just those affected by diabetes From the history of to the reasons why sections, this book is just great.

    9. Wow what an eye opener Dan Hurley presents some amazing facts I was especially educated about the growing Type 1 diabetes epidemic and surprising environmental dietary connections.

    10. This 2010 book is interesting and informative It covers the history of the disease and its rise from ancient times to the present, the invention of insulin, the pros and cons of tight glucose control, some possible causes cow s milk, obesity, pollutants, low levels of Vitamin D, and high levels of hygiene The author discusses possible cures surgical, artificial, and educational.

    11. I am very interested in diabetes because my husband is Type 1 diabetic We ve been blessed that in our almost 8 year marriage he s only had a very serious low one time resulted in an ambulance ride to the hospital however we have dealt with several other complications related to his diabetes eye issues, he just had a kidney transplant a year ago Mostly I was hoping I d learn new ways to help prevent the disease in our 3 children I must say I was disappointed in the lip service paid to breastfeedi [...]

    12. Somehow I have been lucky to not know of any friends or family who have diabetes When I started working at a free health clinic, I was amazed at the huge percentage of our patients who have this disease, so wanted to learn This book is an interesting history, likening it to the plague or polio It reminds me of the game Clue because Mr Hurley provides different hypotheses so maybe Colonel Mustard did it in the library with a candlestick but in the end you are left guessing who, where and what ha [...]

    13. Diabetes is a cruel, cruel disease no one deserves As a society we should be concerned about the pandemic rise of both T1 T2 and other autoimmune diseases in the last few decades This is a good read for anyone regardless of if you ve been touched by the disease or not Scientific information is delivered in an easy to understand way Different theories about the cause prevention are shared Different approaches to a cure are shared I hope in my life time scientists will find both the cause and the [...]

    14. Great book that covers the history of the disease, the methods we have used to combat it, what might cause it, and what we are doing to fight it cure it For those looking for clear cut answers, this is not the book for you Go tilt against windmills elsewhere This is reporting at its best and does offer hope I know I will be taking a lot of vitamin D from now on and see how that helps my sugar.

    15. This is the first diabetes book that I ve read, and I thought it was outstanding Right up until the conclusion, where I thought he should have ripped a whole variety of people and entities a new one But instead, he dashed off a two page call to action This is serious stuff, and things really, really must change The stats are staggering.

    16. This book is a MUST read for understanding the problems today The simple definitions of Type 1 and Type 2 diabetics are becoming blurred because of a change in the numbers of people being diagnosed today and it s link to rising weights across ALL body types There are other factors involved Plus this book details the risks, the meds, the inside story etc I learned a LOT.

    17. Only about 1 3 in on this when it needs to be returned to inter library loan Need to put it aside anyway, because, while much of it is not new to me, I m feeling overwhelmed by it When it interferes with sleep, maybe the timing is wrong, right

    18. interesting, though not compelling his theories on the causes of the rise of diabetes are not backed up with enough data to be convincing, though i do think i m going to start taking a vitamin D supplement the book makes some good points, but nothing i haven t seen elsewhere.

    19. There were a few sketchy parts in the potential causes section, but I think Hurley does a nice job of talking about history, interesting theories and the latest possible diabetes treatments.
