A must-have for all people and families with type 1 diabetes. Each edition is ahead of the game with information about all the new and upcoming types of treatment options (insulin, continuous glucose monitors, insulin pumps, etc.) I have bought every edition since I was diagnosed with diabetes 15 years ago and will continue to buy all future editions.

We were given the previous edition of this book in the hospital when our son was initially diagnosed with Type I diabetes. It was referenced in every appointment and class following that. When the new edition came out, we knew we needed it to have current information at our fingertips. It is easy to read and reference - you do not need to be in the medical field to understand it - you simply need to know someone with diabetes that you want to help!

We were given a copy of this book when my son was first diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes five years ago. The information in this book has literally saved his life ... not to mention my sanity! It is well organized and you don't have to read it all at once, which is especially important for newly diagnosed kids and their overwhelmed parents. The sick day information proved invaluable ...

What a wonderful tool for helping both the non-medical individual but those in the medical field who haven't worked with diabetes in a while! So much has changed from even 10 years ago! I loved the simple drawings and ease of the book.

This book takes everything to a deeper level than "A First Book for Understanding Diabetes." It explains each component of diabetes in more detail. It does use medical vocabulary; therefore, a study if the glossary is helpful before launching into the text. I cannot say enough about how this books has been our friend over the last 13 years.

My parents were given a copy of this book when I was first diagnosed back in 1991. The fact that it is on the 11th edition and still around shows just how informative the book is!
