Editorial Reviews

Review

I feel every child and family should get a copy of your truthful and insightful book. We are often not informed about the causes, research and treatment of our children's diabetes at the depth you go into in your book. Your chapter on the pump is great. (Her son, 9 years of age was diagnosed at 7 years of age and is now on the insulin pump as of Jan. 1999) -- Angela R. McConnell, Fairfield, Connecticut

I have found it most informative and, what particularly interests me, it is written in a way that is easy for us lay people to understand. I congratulate you on this superb addition to our library on diabetes. In my opinion it stands head and shoulders above the rest. -- Sue Leuner Editor, Diabetes Focus, Official Publication of the South African Diabetes Association

I must confess that as a diabetic for the past 35 years I have read numerous books and booklets on diabetes and its management, but never ever have I been alerted to the magnitude of proper management of the disease than in your book. All my unanswered concerns and questions have been answered. -- Cleve Butler, President, Dominican Diabetic Association

It is a splendid book - full of good information. The principles and details of management are in agreement with my own and others in my country. It would be a very good reference for health professionals. I would certainly buy a copy if it was available in Australia and recommend it to my intelligent patients as a regular guide and reference. -- John Court, M.D. Senior Physician, Centre for Adolescent Health, Royal Childrens Hospital, Melbourne, Australia

It is an impressive and extremely useful reference book on childhood diabetes. I guess that it contains everything needed for caring for the patient and his family and all needed to be known by any physician. You have done an excellent job and we look forward for its establishment as "the textbook" for diabetes in children and adolescents. -- Prof. Christos S. Bartsocas Department of Pediatrics, National University of Athens, Greece

The book is excellent and I think will have a wide appeal internationally. However, the book is not suitable for everyone, but certainly would be extremely useful to families and young adults who want comprehensive information and for nurses, general practitioners and other health professionals involved in the care of people with IDDM. Congratulations for an excellent and much needed book. -- Marg McGill, Manager, Diabetes Educator, The Diabetes Centre, Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, Camperdown, Australia

The book is well written and easy to understand. We read small pieces from time to time. Evelina herself can even look in the book and pick up certain things. -- Kenneth Andersson-Emmoth, Sweden, Father of Evelina, 10 years

The more I read of it, the more I think it is a remarkable resource reference for professionals and parents. -- Peter Swift, Consultant Paediatrician, The Childrens Hospital, Leicester Royal Infirmary, Leicester, UK --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Author

I have worked with children and adolescents with diabetes up to the age of 25 for more than 15 years now and I have learned a lot from them through the years. I have collected all my experience in this book and my aim has been to publish a book that is equally readable by persons/parents with diabetes and professionals. When we have the same source of knowledge we can easily share each others thoughts and ideas. I have found it essential that there is scientific evidence behind recommendations and guidelines. Therefore the book contains more than 400 references for further reading. Although I am a pediatrician I have adapted the text to address also the issues of adults with type 1 diabetes.

Sometimes in this book I speak directly to you, the person with diabetes, and sometimes I address your family or parents. At other times there is even information for third parties, like the diabetes team members. When you are reading this book, just imagine that we are all together, sitting around a table, discussing diabetes. Remember that you run your own life - don't let your diabetes take over! Instead you can learn how to handle your diabetes in the different situations that life has to offer. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
Dr Hanas' diabetes instructional manual is well written, easy to read and understand. The book is filled with humor and common-sense advice which is practical, positive and upbeat! Dr Hanas includes the latest medical as well as psychosocial concepts gleaned from years of experience providing care to infants, toddlers, children, adolescents and young adults with type 1 diabetes mellitus aiming for the best glucose control possible. His approach provides information that allows parents and kids to take charge of their own diabetes care and slowly but surely become their own experts. Highly recommended :>

When you open this book you will immediately feel the dedication Dr. Hanas has for persons living with diabetes. This book guides patients to live full, healthy, and productive lives, and fit the necessary diabetes care into their lifestyle. This book will empower you and make you feel good about your options.

I love that "Type 1 Diabetes: How to Become an Expert on Your Own Diabetes" is both comprehensive and extremely readable. There are some drawings from children included in the book that will make you stop and take a deep breath -- only a doctor who TRULY understands what life is like with diabetes, would include such drawings. The graphics keep the book lively and the charts and diagrams make complex concepts, understandable.

My son has had type 1 diabetes for 16 years and I've read many diabetes books in that time. This one is tops.

Format: Paperback
When someone is first diagnosed with diabetes, it can be an overwhelming experience. There is so much information on the market, and much of it can be quite unnerving especially if the diabetes book emphasizes possible complications from the disease. Dr. Hanas' book is very light-hearted and upbeat, and emphasizes, rather, the means to manage the disease. Inherent in diabetes is the requirement that the patient manage his or her own diabetes on a daily basis---being his or her own doctor in a sense. This book provides the tools and tips to understand and manage the disease. A wealth of information, and an excellent resource.
--An adult diabetic

Format: Paperback
This book is a very well written, clear treatise on insulin dependent diabetes. As a practicing physician and diabetic of 36 years duration, I hiughly recommend it for anyone trying to learn more about this illness which often results in more questions than answers when trying to learn about management and how to approach the problems that one encounters in everyday life with this illness. Unlike many books on this subject it answers more questions than it produces. But it does also ask provocative questions of the reader.leaving the reader with material to discuss with their physicians.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As a parent of a recently diagnosed 10 year old boy, I have purchased dozens of books and most have been good. However, only two so far are on my 'MUST HAVE' list: "Think like a pancreas', and this book 'Type 1 Diabetes in Children, Adolescents and Young Adults: How to Become an Expert on Your Own Diabetes'. The latter was the only book I felt was interesting & appropriate for both of us so I purchased two copies - one for him and one for myself. It will remain a great reference book once we're finished reading it. In my opinion, these 2 books are a must if your situation is similar to mine. This book's cover may throw you off by looking too juvenile but trust me in that it doesn't talk down to a ten year old (or a teenager) - in fact, it seems geared to that age group rather than a very young child (under 8 maybe).

This book has helped us so much.
The doctors don't help you too much so you are left with a million questions and this book has helped so much.
This disease is so overwelming and this book is so helpful in easy to understand words.
Instead of going into a panic when something happens we now just go to the book and it calms us right down.
Thank God this book is here.
