Format: Paperback
My teenaged son was recently diagnosed with Type I Diabetes and the hospital gave us the 11th edition of Dr. H. Peter Chase's "A First Book for Understanding Diabetes". It's a great book, and deserves the five stars. Just to let you know - the 12th edition is now published, year 2011. At the time I write this, it is only available from the Children's Diabetes Foundation at Denver. You can check out their website, where it can be purchased on-line, by phone, or you can email and request a form that you can print out and send with a check.

While we were in the hospital with our son, the nurse showed us her copy of the larger book by H. Peter Chase, "Understanding Diabetes - 11th Edition", and highly recommended it. We decided to get it, too. That's when I found out that the 11th edition of this full-size 350+ page "Pink Panther" book is out of print, limited availability, with prices to match!

Fortunately, the 12th edition of the full sized "Understanding Diabetes" is now also now available from the Children's Diabetes Foundation at Denver, where Dr. Chase works.

There is also a 2010 edition Dr. H. Peter Chase's book, "Understanding Insulin Pumps and Continuous Glucose Monitors" available from the Children's Diabetes Foundation at Denver.

Perhaps, eventually, the 2011 - 12th editions of the two Pink Panther books will be available at more places.

Happy Reader

This book is a classic -- loaded with helpful information.

There are 2 Pink Panther books -- this one, "The First Book for..." is a condensed version. The full version is "Understanding Diabetes." Both are awesome.

I am a school nurse and have a newly diagnosed diabetic child. This book is a great tool to the child and her family as well as to me. I have been able to assist her with topics that have changed over the years and I knew very little about. Thank you to Dr. Chase.

This book is a very condensed version of the actual "Understanding Diabetes" 11th Edition. It is little more than a detailed outline. The section on counting carbohydrates is useless. Unless you are well-versed in diabetes (i.e. diabetic educator or endocrinologist), you are wasting your money getting this book. As stated in the title, it is only a "COMPANION to the 11th Edition of 'Understanding Diabetes.' " I would not waste my money on this book, unless I was using the pages as slides for a presentation on the actual book and already had the 11th Edition book memorized.

My son was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes 2 years ago. This is the book we got from the hospital. Its a great book for anyone that needs to be educated on the subject. I have a copy that i use all the time, my mother also has a copy and Im sending one to my sister because she will be taking care of him for a week while im on vacation. She can read the book a few times then when i go to explain things to her befor I leave it wont be so confusing. This book is very easy to understand, and read. I would recomend it to anyone who is curious about type 1 diabetes.

It is easy to read. It is easy to understand. All ages seem to be able to understand the basics of it--even for those early readers, they may not be able to read it, but when it is read to them, they seem to comprehend. Well written and gives parents the basics too so that they can talk with their children better about it. I would highly recommend it. I am a registered nurse and have given it to parents, my family, and young parents of newly diagnosed Type I Diabetics.

Much of my nursing career has been spent educating patients on their conditions and how they can manage them. This is a great place to start that process, for adults and children both. Written for parents, I would still suggest it for anyone with a new diabetes background or someone starting insulin.
