This book offered some awesome suggestions. I'm handing in my resignation for the diabetes police right now! Overall a great starting resource as I learn more about what she is going through.
21 Simple Things You Can Do To Help Someone With Diabetes offers very helpful advice for the friends and family of someone with diabetes. The author stresses how important it is to be informed and supportive.
Chapter 1 hit very close to home for my husband. The only thing he new about diabetes was what he had heard from me or others. One night I was frustrated and in tears because I haven't been able to get my numbers on target and didn't know what to do. My husband suggested we get out the information package from the diabetes clinic at the hospital and do some brainstorming. He sat with me to watch the video, discussing each section until we had come up with some ideas to help get my numbers under control. That night meant so much to me.
Cherie Burbach writes in a friendly, conversational style which is easy to read. She offers so many simple ideas, some were common sense while others were very surprising to me. I think her book should be recommend to anyone with diabetes and to their friends and family. Diabetes is hard enough to live with; why not make it a little easier for your friend or loved one by having a good understanding of what your friend is going through and being as supportive as possible.

Millions have been diagnosed with diabetes, and have been the brunt of a comment or situation with someone from the uninformed public.
It not only comes from "the public", but family members and friends who take little or no time to understand this major health issue.
The author simplifes the subject matter and has created a powerful checklist for the uninformed.
It is an easy to read, easy to understand guide hitting on emotional, sensitive and practical situations that we probably experienced ourselves, or overheard in conversation at some point in our lives.
Have you had awkward moments with a friend or family member that is diabetic?
Could you have handled it better? This guide gets you there. More importantly, reading it can help you say the right thing rather than the wrong thing. Knowledge is power and kindness and understanding go a long way in any relationship. As a practitioner of acupuncture and Chinese Medicine I am happy to recommend this book. It sheds light on a topic that has not been addressed ...It educates and puts responsibility on others. It will help many friends and family 'step up" in the right direction. It offers a new type of "help" book...help for others!
