Publisher's Summary

Adam Brown’s acclaimed diaTribe column, Adam’s Corner, has brought life-transforming diabetes tips to more than one million people since 2013. 

In this highly actionable guide, he shares the food, mind-set, exercise, and sleep strategies that have had the biggest positive impact on his diabetes - and hopefully yours, too! 

Bright Spots & Landmines is filled with hundreds of effective diabetes tips, questions, and shortcuts, including what to eat to minimize blood-sugar swings; helpful strategies to feel less stressed, guilty, and burned out; and simple ways to improve exercise and sleep. Along the way, Adam argues that the usual focus on problems and mistakes in diabetes (land mines) misses the bigger opportunity: bright spots. By identifying what’s working and finding ways to do those things more often, we can all live healthier, happier, and more hopeful lives. 

Whether you are newly diagnosed or have had type 1 or type 2 diabetes for more than 50 years, this audiobook delivers on its promise: practical diabetes advice that works immediately.

Focus Is On Insulin Users

The book is generally informative but if you aren't an insulin user you may find other books on diabetes care more useful.

Effective actions and insights on every page.

I do not have diabetes. I read diabetes oriented books to get ideas on how to live a low insulin lifestyle for optimal health as an older person. This book is full of ideas in that vein.
