I received this book several days ago. I have already read it completely and think it is the most comprehensive book to date about raising a child with diabetes. The topics covered are helpful for the parent of a newly diagnosed child as well as seasoned parents of a child living with diabetes who are moving into a new realm of growing up with a chronic disease.

A must for all parents of kids with diabetes and a nice way to get your feet under you after dx. This book includes tools and information about technology to help manage the disease but also ways to get through emotional toll disease can take on the entire family.

I'm glad to see a portion of proceeds goes to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, but noticed that the book mentions many resources for finding information, not just JDRF.

This is an excellent book for any parent who is faced with raising a child with diabetes. I purchased this book five years into my daughters diagnosis and learned many new things. This book is very well written for the layperson and easy to pick up for reference. I would strongly recommend it!

I purchased this book, both in Kindle and hard copy, for my daughter, son-in-law and myself shortly after their 6 year daughter was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. There was so much information flowing from the healthcare providers and school personnel that we were all overwhelmed. This book is a simple, straightforward informational guide on many issues being faced by parents and grandparents of children with diabetes. It does not dive into the 'technical' aspects of the disease, specifically measuring insulin, etc. But that is ok - the licensed providers do that well. What it does offer is practical information on real issues being encountered: school nurse relationships, parent burn out and many more. This has been a well-received, appreciated guide to a very overwhelming and frightening event in our lives.

I just recently bought this book even though my daughter has had type 1 diabetes for several years now. A lot of the book at the beginning focuses on diagnosis & even though it was a long time ago for me I still read through it. It was a good refresher as well at times a good laugh, remembering feeling like bursting into tears at the first trip to the supermarket after diagnosis! (glad to know I'm not the only one). This book is very comprehensive dealing with everything from carb counting to sick day management to research towards a cure. It's a book I'll use time & again as situations arise. Highly recommend

I have read just about everything about Type 1 diabetes that I can find since my 6 year old was diagnosed. This book has a lot of practical day to day advice and support. Clearly it was written by someone who has traveled this journey and learned many lessons along the way.

As parents of a newly diagnosed child with Type I diabetes, we were looking for a recently written, comprehensive overview of what we and our child were facing, and this book does an excellent job of providing exactly that. Covering topics ranging from how to deal with stereotypes and "helpful" comments from others about how to treat diabetes to glucose monitors, insulin choices, and technology, to dealing with issues like school, camp, and playdates, it is a very useful guide. We have a few quibbles--although overall reassuring, for example, it talks about checking a child's blood sugar every night after the child goes to sleep when the parent goes to bed and an additional several times a week in the middle of the night, which is far more often than our diabetes team suggests is needed. Even so, for parents (and grandparents--we bought extra copies for them) looking for an introduction to the world of Type I diabetes care, this is an excellent choice.

As a parent of a newly diagnosed child, I just bought this book and I am half way through reading it. It is so informative, so easy to read and seems to contain information on every aspect of dealing with type 1 diabetes. It gives references to other books and places. My husband, who hates to read, also is reading and indicated that it is a quick read with valuable information. The author comes through as so genuine and you truly feel like you are getting help from a friend. I highly recommend this book.
