If you have been diagnosed with LADA / Type 1.5 diabetes, your first step should be to get a copy of Dr. Bernstein's Diabetes Solution. This book is a definitive guide to not just living with LADA/Type 1, but how to thrive, avoid diabetic complications, and ensure good health. Dr. Bernstein's book is written for Type 1 diabetics, but the advice regarding managing blood sugar and treatment are applicable to LADA/Type 1.
Make no mistake -- Dr. Bernstein's recommendations are a departure from the carb-heavy diet you will find recommended by the American Diabetes Association and many diabetic educators. But his own longevity -- Dr. Bernstein is a Type 1 diabetic himself, and is now in his 80s -- and his extensive knowlege are testaments to the success of his approach. This is the FIRST book I bought after my own LADA/Type 1.5 diagnosis, and has helped me manage my own health and get my Hemoglobin A1C down to below 6.0 -- unheard of in many LADA/Type 1.5 patients.
