A must have in any diabetic library.
With the advent of the CGMS, very valuable information is available to an athlete if they can afford to buy one and/or if their insurance company covers one.
He is doing really well and told me yesterday that having diabetes isn't such a big deal. We are well into the baseball season and looking ahead to hockey. I was very nervous about handling low blood sugars, but he seems to take it all into stride.
I highly recommend this book -- it is easy and interesting to read.
