Book Cover  

If you only have one book about diabetes, Understanding Diabetes should be it. There are more technical books, but none better to help you understand how to live successfully with type 1 diabetes. Representing the clinical practice methods of the The Barbara Davis Center for Childhood Diabetes, the 13th Edition, published in 2015, is completely up-to-date, including the latest on insulin pumps, continuous glucose monitoring, and research efforts such as the Bionic Pancreas. Understanding Diabetes is both comprehensive and easy to read -- a great combination for anyone living with type 1 diabetes, regardless of their age (this isn't a book just for kids with type 1 diabetes).

In summary, no other book about diabetes offers the depth and breadth of Understanding Diabetes. That's reason enough to get a copy. And at US$25, it's so inexpensive that you can't afford to be without it. You can order the book online.

The complete text of the 12th edition is online.
