With Doing Diabetes Differently, Chad Lewis offers down-to-earth perspectives and approaches for all who struggle with diabetes. Lewis combines years of research with firsthand experience as he covers—sometimes provocatively—the mental, nutritional, exercise, and drugs-and-devices aspects of the disease. To present additional perspectives, the book includes commentaries from notable experts in the diabetes community.
Among the topics covered are:
• Why the current hierarchy of diabetes care isn’t working
• A mental framework that goes beyond just treating symptoms of diabetes distress
• Why “going on a diet” is futile and what dietary alternatives work
• How to make the right exercise more achievable
• Why less is more when it comes to diabetes drugs and how to best use diabetes devices
Doing Diabetes Differently isn’t another how-to guide. Instead, it’s a place to discover a diabetes answer, a question to ask a care provider to get one, or a reference to consult to find one. If you’re frustrated and want a way to do diabetes differently (and better)—for yourself or someone you care for—this life-changing book is for you.
“I always relied on traditional medical support during the decades I’ve had diabetes. At the end of the day, though, I needed more, because no one shared information that was not ‘approved’ or outside the traditional treatment box. Doing Diabetes Differently met my need.”
— AMBER CLOUR, founder of Diabetes Daily Grind and host of the Real Life Diabetes Podcast
"While I don’t agree with all of Chad’s views, I know that you will find something in his provocative fresh insights and science- and experience-based recommendations that may kick your diabetes management into higher gear. Whether you have type 1 or type 2 diabetes, you will find something that makes you say, 'That’s a great idea, I need to try that!'"

"When reading, it will become clear that some of Chad’s comments are controversial. This is a good thing!… Doing Diabetes Differently will challenge the reader to think more critically of what they’ve been taught, or how they’ve been living their life with diabetes."
— DR. IRL HIRSCH, Professor of Medicine, University of Washington
"…Chad approaches this focused book with a passion to share what he has learned. The book takes a refreshing approach aiming to challenge the reader’s assumptions about diabetes care. He clearly separates the “wheat from the chaff” with style and grace and successfully achieves his objective of helping the reader to frame good questions of their care providers. Those of us involved with diabetes care will also benefit from the reading…The author’s keen intellect and avoidance of common cognitive traps makes this an informative and insightful book. It’s a must-read!"
