What is special about the author?
This book was written by Dr. Zilber, an endocrinologist with over twenty years of medical experience. He has treated numerous patients on both sides of the spectrum: those who avoided the necessary therapy – and as a consequence let diabetes gnaw at their vital organs – and those who were treated with an inappropriate therapy and suffered significant and even deadly side effects.
This book was written so that you won't repeat such mistakes and won't fall into the traps that other diabetics have fallen into…
