My father has lived with T1D for 60 years and he is now reading Think Like a Pancreas. He has firsthand (and finger) experience with the technology of yore - also detailed in TLAP - and is now looking into CGM and other advances. This book has been a revelation for my family, and I can't recommend it enough.
If only I’d learned all it had to tell me about my body and how it’s grappling with this stuff called insulin, both a giver of life and a bringer of death.
If only I’d known what I do now, I might have spared myself decades of mismanagement and complications.
This book is beautiful and very informative, and the info it contains is life changing. It is simply written but not dumbed down, and it lays out very important info about how insulin works and how to best manage using it. After reading it and employing the tools it discusses, I’ve gotten a MUCH better understanding of my disease - it’s an education I sadly never got from any doctor.
I can’t thank the author enough for writing such an engaging and important book. EVERY DIABETIC AND THEIR FAMILY MEMBERS SHOULD READ IT. In fact, I think they should give every newly diagnosed T1D a copy as they leave the hospital - or maybe even before! It really should be required reading, and I’ve told my endo that now on numerous occasions - lol.
