Format: Paperback
Kudos to the authors! This concise well researched book provides outstanding information and advice for health care providers, parents of adolescents/emerging adults with type 1 diabetes, and emerging adults themselves with type 1 diabetes, in a compassionate and thoughtful manner. The book is brilliantly executed with sensitivity to the patient and sets forth the absolute necessity of putting an end to blaming the patient and finding an empowering way to communicate about "making the diabetes more manageable" through setting individualized realistic and attainable goals. Some of the topics covered include developmental issues, insulin delivery choice, insulin pumps, continuous glucose monitoring, checklists, exercise, driving, alcohol, burnout, depression, disordered eating, parental and partner support, transitioning to adulthood with diabetes, complications (without "fear- mongering"), realistic expectations,health care provider clinical approaches and guidelines, 2 assessment instruments, vignettes, etc. This is a MUST read and one that is enjoyable because it is written by clinicians who through their writing demonstrate they truly care about their patients.

An insightful guide and resource for professionals and parents seeking knowledge and information about young diabetics, the significance of the formative years and the lasting impact of diabetic experiences as they transition to independence. Dr. Wolpert has written this book from not only from a practical standpoint but also empathizing with the personal burden of the disease and sharing research and knowledge in which he has had a long standing interest.

My son Is now 20 and it has been a long and hard road since he was 16. This book explains what he has been experiencing very well. I really needed to know this information years ago, but I'm glad to have it now. I think my husband also benefited from reading it. Becoming an adult can be difficult, but becoming a man with diabetes really requires some real family support. It's not easy to juggle everything as this book explains very well!
