Bright Spots & Landmines: The Diabetes Guide I Wish Someone Would Have Handed Me – Adam Brown
Adam Brown is the well-known Senior Editor and columnist at diaTribe and Head of Diabetes Technology & Digital Health at Close Concerns. He has lived with diabetes for over 17 years.
In Bright Spots & Landmines, he shares real-life, realistic solutions for many of the challenges that people with diabetes face.
He breaks it down into Food, Mindset, Exercise and Sleep. And not just generally why those things are important or what we “need” to do. But he goes into real examples with real suggestions and solutions.
He teaches us things like how to “Eat defensively” and emphasizes the importance of mindfulness in diabetes.
Whether you are new to diabetes, or have lived several years with this condition, there is good advice and life lessons here for everyone.
This book is so good I know of a few healthcare teams that recommend it to their patients. Brown clearly states in the beginning of the book that it is not intended to be medical advice, but he is a true expert in diabetes and what he shares has helped many people.
He also writes regularly in Adam’s Corner addressing many diabetes challenges.
