Review

It is an incredible bok, which deals in depth with every detail of diabetes care in young people and it never ducks any issues Dr Charles Fox, Consultant Physician at Northampton General Hospital --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Author

I have worked with children and adolescents with diabetes up to the age of 25 for more than 15 years now and I have learned a lot from them through the years. I have collected all my experience in this book and my aim has been to publish a book that is equally readable by persons/parents with diabetes and professionals. When we have the same source of knowledge we can easily share each others thoughts and ideas. I have found it essential that there is scientific evidence behind recommendations and guidelines. Therefore the book contains more than 400 references for further reading. Although I am a pediatrician I have adapted the text to address also the issues of adults with type 1 diabetes.

Sometimes in this book I speak directly to you, the person with diabetes, and sometimes I address your family or parents. At other times there is even information for third parties, like the diabetes team members. When you are reading this book, just imagine that we are all together, sitting around a table, discussing diabetes. Remember that you run your own life - don't let your diabetes take over! Instead you can learn how to handle your diabetes in the different situations that life has to offer. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
Dr Hanas' diabetes instructional manual is well written, easy to read and understand. The book is filled with humor and common-sense advice which is practical, positive and upbeat! Dr Hanas includes the latest medical as well as psychosocial concepts gleaned from years of experience providing care to infants, toddlers, children, adolescents and young adults with type 1 diabetes mellitus aiming for the best glucose control possible. His approach provides information that allows parents and kids to take charge of their own diabetes care and slowly but surely become their own experts. Highly recommended :>

When you open this book you will immediately feel the dedication Dr. Hanas has for persons living with diabetes. This book guides patients to live full, healthy, and productive lives, and fit the necessary diabetes care into their lifestyle. This book will empower you and make you feel good about your options.

I love that "Type 1 Diabetes: How to Become an Expert on Your Own Diabetes" is both comprehensive and extremely readable. There are some drawings from children included in the book that will make you stop and take a deep breath -- only a doctor who TRULY understands what life is like with diabetes, would include such drawings. The graphics keep the book lively and the charts and diagrams make complex concepts, understandable.

My son has had type 1 diabetes for 16 years and I've read many diabetes books in that time. This one is tops.

When someone is first diagnosed with diabetes, it can be an overwhelming experience. There is so much information on the market, and much of it can be quite unnerving especially if the diabetes book emphasizes possible complications from the disease. Dr. Hanas' book is very light-hearted and upbeat, and emphasizes, rather, the means to manage the disease. Inherent in diabetes is the requirement that the patient manage his or her own diabetes on a daily basis---being his or her own doctor in a sense. This book provides the tools and tips to understand and manage the disease. A wealth of information, and an excellent resource.

As a parent of a recently diagnosed 10 year old boy, I have purchased dozens of books and most have been good. However, only two so far are on my 'MUST HAVE' list: "Think like a pancreas', and this book 'Type 1 Diabetes in Children, Adolescents and Young Adults: How to Become an Expert on Your Own Diabetes'. The latter was the only book I felt was interesting & appropriate for both of us so I purchased two copies - one for him and one for myself. It will remain a great reference book once we're finished reading it. In my opinion, these 2 books are a must if your situation is similar to mine. This book's cover may throw you off by looking too juvenile but trust me in that it doesn't talk down to a ten year old (or a teenager) - in fact, it seems geared to that age group rather than a very young child (under 8 maybe).

Format: Paperback
This book is a very well written, clear treatise on insulin dependent diabetes. As a practicing physician and diabetic of 36 years duration, I hiughly recommend it for anyone trying to learn more about this illness which often results in more questions than answers when trying to learn about management and how to approach the problems that one encounters in everyday life with this illness. Unlike many books on this subject it answers more questions than it produces. But it does also ask provocative questions of the reader.leaving the reader with material to discuss with their physicians.

This book has helped us so much.
The doctors don't help you too much so you are left with a million questions and this book has helped so much.
This disease is so overwelming and this book is so helpful in easy to understand words.
Instead of going into a panic when something happens we now just go to the book and it calms us right down.
Thank God this book is here.
