Type 2 Diabetes: The Owner’s Manual

Type 2 Diabetes: The Owner’s Manual

amazon barnes & noble Audible Goodreads
Daryl Wein discovered he was among the millions of patients with Type 2 diabetes while studying to become a physician’s assistant. That’s when he found out that, despite Type 2 diabetes making up the vast majority of cases, most of the reading material he could find was geared toward patients with type 1 diabetes.

Type 2 Diabetes: The Owner’s Manual is his way of fixing that. This handbook is an easy-to-understand guide on how to manage your blood sugar primarily through diet. It is written clearly and concisely, explaining the difference between the two diseases in a way that is easy to grasp. You don’t have to be a health professional to understand the book. Wein includes concrete examples of what to eat and what to avoid. He talks about the importance of exercise and provides information about medicines in a way that the layman can comprehend without needing to know medical terminology. The book also includes a useful question-and-answer section that covers a variety of specifics about Type 2 diabetes to help you make sense of it all.

Wein knows about the frustration and fear diabetics feel because he’s been there. As he explains in the book, when he experienced blurred vision and other health problems while studying to become a physician’s assistant, he discovered that he was among the millions diagnosed each year with Type 2 diabetes.

“There was no mistake: I was now a diabetic!” he writes. “I sat down and started crying, not something I would ordinarily allow myself to do.” He goes on to describe how a mentor told him that diabetes can usually be managed easily. He made sure to explain that failing to control it can lead to serious health problems including blindness, kidney failure, and limb amputations. He offered hope. Wein’s book offers the same message of hope, along with a somber reminder that failing to control diabetes can lead to premature death.


“We have an epidemic of Type 2 Diabetes in the USA today, primarily as a result of our dietary habits. Follow the excellent guidelines contained in Type 2 Diabetes The Owner’s Manual and you will significantly improve your overall health.”
~ James A. Surrell, MD, Author SOS (Stop Only Sugar) Diet

“Daryl Wein has written the new hallmark for understanding and treating Type 2 Diabetes. This book belongs on the shelves of everyone concerned about a new diagnosis of Type 2 Diabetes, and for that matter, on the reading list of everyone concerned about health now and in the future.”
~ Grady Harp, MD, Top 100 Amazon Hall of Fame Reviewer

“This book is a sort of mini-miracle in the way it so succinctly and plainly explains potentially complicated matters. Wein simply tells it like it is, providing easy answers. This is a must-have guidebook for anyone trying to cope with living with Type 2 Diabetes; a reminder of the path to living healthy and the dangers of uncontrolled high blood sugar. Essential reading, indeed.”
~ John J. Kelly, Cincinnati City Beat, Amazon Reviewer

“Type 2 Diabetes may very well be the least understood and most over-treated common disease in America. Type 2 Diabetes The Owner’s Manual opened my eyes not only regarding diabetes but also to the real impact carbs of all kinds have on my body and my general health.”
~ Emory Daniels, Amazon VINE Reviewer

Notes from Daryl Wein
When I started practicing medicine in 1999 as a newly diagnosed type 2 diabetic I quickly discovered that almost none of my patients had ever been given specific instructions about which foods to eat and which to avoid. Dietary adjustment is by far the safest, and most effective, way to control blood sugar. And they don’t teach this in medical school – I had to figure it out on my own!

After 17 years of lengthy discussions with each of my new type 2 diabetic patients, my colleagues finally convinced me to write a simple owner’s manual to share with the nearly 100 million Americans who have blood sugar problems. About 20 million have been diagnosed; the rest are completely unaware of their condition – there are no early symptoms. The sooner we can find the problem, and get the blood sugar well controlled, the more likely people can live normal lives without any threat of the horrible complications that will otherwise develop – blindness, kidney failure, leg amputations, heart attacks, strokes, chronic pain, etc.

Author Bio:

When Daryl Wein first discovered he had “Type 2 Diabetes” he made a second important discovery – that his biggest challenge was to reduce his consumption of carbohydrates, most of which converts into sugar in the body.
A native of Niles, Michigan, Wein graduated from USC Medical Center in 1978 as a Medical Technologist/Clinical Laboratory Scientist and then earned a degree from UC Davis School of Medicine in 1999 as a Family Practice Physician Assistant. He has been a resident of Modesto, California, from 1954 to the present.
Since 1999 Wein has been in practice as a physician assistant with Drs. David Olson and Elaine Madayag involved in all aspects of internal medicine including in-office surgery.
Since 1999, while working with Drs. Olson and Madayag, Wein also worked as a PA at
Stanislaus County Urgent Care, Oak Valley Hospital ER, Central California Bariatric Surgery, as a contractor for California Correctional Health Care System, and for rural health clinics run by Oak Valley Clinics.
Daryl Wein also is active in volunteer work, including: CME Chairman for Stanislaus Nurse Practitioner/Physician Assistant Network; audio visual technician for the Crossroads Grace Community Church; and secretary for Bible Study Fellowship (BSF International) for Modesto Men’s Class.
A licensed commercial pilot since age 18, Wein has been a flight instructor since age 19, and developed Regional Aviation Ground Schools at age 20. He also has worked as a professional musician, has done some software development, is credentialed in California to teach community college, and now adds the title of author to his life experiences with the publication of Type 2 Diabetes: The Owner’s Manual in 2016.
Wein says that if all persons with blood sugar abnormalities (who are not truly dependent on insulin) were to follow the simple advice in his new book, the impact on their overall health would be immense and the savings for healthcare in the U.S. alone would be in the many billions of dollars.
He lives in Modesto with wife Jann and in addition to the above list of interests and involvements Wein also enjoys photography, music performance, water sports and amateur radio. Daryl and Jann have an adult daughter, adult son, and three grandchildren.
