Book Cover  

One of the best manuals on day-to-day diabetes management, Think Like a Pancreas by Gary Scheiner, is a must for all with type 1 diabetes. During his 25 years with diabetes, Gary has dedicated himself to determining how best to deal with the ups and downs of diabetes and is intent on sharing his knowledge with others. How to take insulin on days you plan to exercise, how specific types of exercise and certain foods affect one's blood sugar, and how to prevent hypo- and hyperglycemia, are among the subjects covered in this book. Gary has specific advice about what to do when you are having surgery, how caffeine affects blood sugars and concise descriptions on how to calculate insulin boluses. Newly updated in 2011 to include the latest on pumps, sensors, and even incretins, Think Like a Pancreas remains one of the few must-have books for everyone living with type 1 diabetes and is highly recommended.
