Book Review: Reversing Diabetes by Dr Alan Barclay

Type 2 diabetes is everywhere and on the rise. According to Professor Peter Coleman, the Director of Diabetes and Endocrinology at the Royal Melbourne Hospital, in his Foreword to this book, diabetes affects at least 1.1 million Australians.

All these questions and more are answered in Dr Alan Barclay’s new book ‘Reversing Diabetes’.
