About the Author
Simon Marlow was born and educated in Scotland. His desire through adolescence was to apply engineering principles to the human body. He graduated from Strathclyde University in Scotland with a BSc in Chemical Engineering and a PhD in Bio-Engineering. His PhD specialized in the control of blood oxygen during heart-lung bypass. He spent the next 20 plus years in Pharmaceuticals working for such companies as SmithKline Beecham and Sanofi-Aventis. His love for science and engineering, as applied to the human anatomy, has put him in a unique position of understanding how the body functions in terms of biology, engineering and science.
In the late 1990s he was diagnosed with Prediabetes. This spurred him into looking into the type 2 diabetes state and the information relevant to this disease. He found that there was considerable conflicting information about diabetes in terms of diet and exercise. He decided to take matters into his own hands and experimented with diet, exercise and he monitored his blood glucose frequently. He found out that moderate changes to his diet with balanced exercise allowed him to manage his prediabetes condition without much impact on his way of life.
In his book he explains the three steps required to manage his prediabetic condition with minimal impact to his lifestyle.
