4.0 out of 5 stars Used in our diabetes classes November 10, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My son was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes six months ago, and since then we've been attending classes to help him learn how to manage his disease. "Understanding Diabetes" is the book that they use in our classes. It is easy for kids (teen and pre-teen) to read and understand, and it covers just about every aspect of the disease. It is a great reference for any family dealing with diabetes to have on hand.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dr. Chase is the BEST! July 22, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have had the pleasure of interviewing Doctor Chase, and I have to tell you that not only does he really know his stuff, he knows how to break it down so we can understand it.

With obesity now a dis-ease in our country and 70 million people walking around in a pre-diabetic state, we all need to come to grips with this,,,,,we have a problem, a societal problem, a generational problem and basically it is a major problem!

Understanding and owning it are something we lack, so what do we do? I will give you my opinion and that is become educated, read Dr. Chase's books and look in the mirror.

If you are healthy, good for you, help someone get better and help our society in the long run.

Positive energy, helping others is the key to our success, lets deal with this one person at a time.

I felt that this book conveys a lot of information about diabetes in an easy to read fashion and without talking down to the reader.

I found this book to be totally helpful when our 8 year old daughter was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. The smaller edition was handed out to us at the hospital, however, we wanted more information and this book did not fail us.
