Nicely wriiten, full of facts and easy to understand.
Great Reader of books
The book is very thorough yet easy to read, and contains everything you need to know, to treat your child's type 1 diabetes ("juvenile onset" or insulin dependent).

I am a diabetes educator and this is the book I recommend to all the parents of a child that has diabetes. When a child is first diagnosed with diabetes the parents are overwhelmed with information and do not remember everything the nurse or doctor tells them and I find that this book gives all the information in a nut shell. It will also help answer the everyday questions of What "if". It is a excellent resource and gives very good examples of what the bloodsugar should be for each age, how much food to give for exercise, the action of insulin how to treat low blood sugar and what to do on days that your child is sick. etc. It gives pretty much all the information you need.

I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at the age of 24. This book was extremely helpful to me. It was not too simple for me and I read it several times. Now, as a medical student, I recommend it to patients of all ages as a great place to start learning about Type 1 DM. I have not encountered its equal.

This book explains what you need to know if you/your child are newly diagnosed in an easy to understand language. We were given the book while our daughter was in the hospital, and even though we have many more books in our diabetes library now, this one has the most marked pages, and is definitely the one we read the most, especially in the first year.

Format: Paperback
My daughter Kate was diagnosed 3 years ago and this book has been my bible, especially during that critical 1st year. I've gone back to it time and time again to help me make the right decisions on managing Kate's diabetes. It's easy to read, easy to search and very helpful when solving problems. A must have for recently diagnosed (or parents of recently diagnosed).

A clear and well-organized manual for understanding and managing Type I diabetes. Covering virtually every aspect of diabetes care, Understanding Diabetes is practically a crash course in a single book. The book is easy to read and full of excellent illustrations and helpful equations and tables. Also a great resource for discussions with your diabetes care team.
