This is a one of a kind book for anyone with type 1 diabetes.It teaches how to do carbohydrate counting, how to account for exercise, illness, and unexpected highs and lows.
I hope the authors write an updated version of this book because it is really necessary. It is surprising that there are so few books like this available to diabetics who really have to take care of their disease all by themselves. It is lonely out there and books like this really help.

This book would have been EXCELLENT several years ago, but it apparently was written before Humalog becamse available and doesn't include this very useful insulin in the control techniques. As a result, it is not very useful. A Second Edition with all the latest techniques would be very worthwhile.

There is a lot of great information here, but a lot of it is sadly out of date. In particular, there's almost nothing related to using Humalog insulin, and I don't know anyone who uses Regular anymore. (In fact, I never did, I used Semi-Lente when they still manufactured it ages ago) At the very least, I was expecting that there would be more detailed discussions of other insulins, but the assumption is that you'll be using regular. Since the information on insulin duration, etc. permeate the information on exercise and most other chapters, I was disappointed that so much of the information is a bit dated. I'd recommend waiting for an update.
