At the age of fifty-one, Sharon Johnson knew something was wrong. She began to gain weight, had a tremendous thirst, and became gravely ill. The doctor checked her blood sugar and found that it was abnormally high: on a scale of 0-14, her A1C level was a 13.8. Her doctor diagnosed her as a Type 2 diabetic, and Sharon realized she had to make some major changes in her life.

With the help of her husband, Sharon began researching diabetes and came up with a six-step approach to managing this potentially deadly disease. These steps include

setting priorities;
hydrating your body;
finding the right medications;
managing your diet;
getting adequate sleep.

By following these lifestyle changes over the next eight months, Sharon not only lowered her A1C level from 13.8 to 5.8 and maintained it, but also reduced her daily medications levels by more than 50 percent. In addition, she lost weight, lowered her cholesterol, and had more energy.

Full of helpful information and solid advice, How My Wife Saved Her Life is one womans story of how she took charge of her diabetes and saved her life.

"Her priority is that diabetes will not defeat her. Will it defeat you?"

This book was authored by the husband of a woman who almost died from type-II diabetes. He describes her struggle and provides advice for other diabetics, as well as a warning for those not yet afflicted with the disease.

Johnson's wife, Sharon, was only fifty-one years old when she was diagnosed with type-II diabetes. Indeed, she became gravely ill, with a near-lethal blood sugar level, before her doctors arrived at that diagnosis. However, Sharon dramatically lowered her blood-sugar level and improved her general health by making certain lifestyle changes. Johnson organizes these lifestyle modifications into a six step approach beneficial to not only diabetics but anyone wanting to improve their general health. In the section on diet management, there is a sample meal plan.

There is a great deal of information out about diabetes. Some of this information presented in this book is available through many sources (i.e., suggestions such as altering one's diet and getting enough exercise). However, the six steps are nicely organized and easy to follow. Furthermore, Johnson has been able to observe first-hand how these various modifications affected and continue to affect his wife. For example, he mentions that if his wife has missed exercising for several days, he notices a decline in her physical health and mental outlook. Also, he provides simple, clear explanations of the medical aspects of the disease, such as explaining what it means to have high blood sugar and what it will do to one's body in the long run. There were a few editing issues, such as a word being left out, minor typos, awkward sentences, and punctuation errors. A reference list would have been a nice addition to this book. Overall, though, it is a helpful guide, especially for newly-diagnosed diabetics.

This book is dedicated to those who seek the truth about total wellbeing and believe they are being slowly killed by their primary care physicians who continue to prescribe copious amounts of drugs for each and every malady. We are having a medical crisis. Do not wait until the morgue can not process the bodies fast enough to have doubt in the medical system. My goal is to inform the general public about the dangers of our fake health care system. Most people do not know that the medications their trusted doctor is prescribing them are killing them slowly! Our health care model is designed to confuse patients and minimize physician responsibility. This book will help you understand how your body works and how YOU can manage your own complete health care, not just specific medical conditions such as hypertension, high cholesterol, diabetes, cancer, heartburn, depression, insomnia, allergies etc.

Instead of empowering patients to know more about their illnesses, doctors have instilled fear in them and prescribed unnecessary drugs, tests, and surgeries to justify large medical bills and make the drug companies obscenely wealthy. Doctors get paid well at our expense (body and wallet). 

Most of my patients have benefited greatly from my extensive education, deep-rooted culture, diverse background, and utmost honesty in teaching them about medicine the way it should be taught (basic and true), and it was through their inspiration that I wrote this book. In truth I feel I had no choice. No doctor would dare expose the awful truth regarding our broken medical system for fear their financial status will be compromised. My ultimate intention is to help every person maintain an independent mind and body until they breathe their last breath with dignity.
