is a welcome addition to the literature on
diabetes, offering patients and families not
only the necessary information they need to cope
with this chronic illness but, more importantly,
providing the reader with a sense of
empowerment, a way to "adapt diabetes to
fit your life instead of adapting your life to
diabetes." Encouraging diabetics to take
control of their lives, to individualize
prescribed care, to manage their disease in a
way that works for them sets this book apart.
Its approach and methods are applicable to any
chronic illness. Well-organized and beautifully
written, it is also filled with personal
comments making the reader feel he is not alone.
It is outstanding - the best of its kind!"
have been caring for people who have diabetes
for over 25 years and I'm always looking for
really good diabetes books. This new book goes
right to the top of my list. The title (The
Little Diabetes Book You Need to Read) tells it
all. This book is a perfect preparation for
living with diabetes. It is beautifully written
by two people who really know what they are
talking about. If you have diabetes or if
someone you love has diabetes, buy this book!"
am an RN that had cared for patients with
diabetes in the hospital but really didn't
"get it" until I spent a week with my
brother-in-law as he recovered from one of many
surgeries he has needed because of complications
of his diabetes. I can't tell you how great it
is to read a book that takes into account the
complexities of each individual living with
diabetes... physically, mentally and
emotionally. This book is not only beautifully
written and easy to understand but it offers a
clear, flexible and guilt-free way to manage
diabetes so that you and your family can focus
on life. Many of the insights in this book can
be applied to any chronic health issue. The
title says it all....The Little Diabetes Book
You Need to Read. Really!"
