Letter from the Editor #715:

Feb 5, 2014

Many times our patients will say "just give me a book I can read that will fix all my problems and I will do it," and we know full well that it will most likely never happen. Over the years I have recommended a few but the patients could really never get into what they were reading. Now our own Dr. Sheri Colberg-Ochs has just co-authored a new book with Dr. Osama Hamdy of the Joslin Diabetes Center. For many years she has shared her vast knowledge of physical activity, dieting and diabetes with us. In fact, month after month her articles are always among our most popular articles. This month she is sharing the introduction to her new book, and a quick read will show you why this book might actually work.

One item in this week’s newsletter points out how powerful the body is when it wants to get back to homeostasis, regardless of whether the results are good or bad. Item #3 discusses the paradoxical effect that the SGLT-2 inhibitors can have. We should have seen this coming: follow this link to find out what that effect is and how you might treat it.  


With a day packed full of education, motivational tools, one-on-one sessions, and workshops, the TCOYD health fair is a great way to get your patients to take better care of their health and themselves.
