by Ragnar Hanas, MD, Department of Pediatrics, Uddevalla, Sweden

This book would be extremely useful to families and young adults who want comprehensive information and for nurses, general practitioners and other health professionals involved in the care of people with IDDM.

Our Insulin Pumpers reviewer (a retired doc) writes: I strongly urge all type 1 diabetics to read "Insulin dependant diabetes" by Ragnar Hannus a pediatrician in Sweden. This is well written in English, it has cartoons and drawings which illustrate some of our problems. You can get it from Amazon.com I reviewed it for them some months ago. I call it the Mouse book because, apologies to Cheryl M, it has a mouse on the cover. The technical lingo is minimal and everything is well explained. I even recommend this book to med students. Hanus's son has diabetes so it is written from the heart. A recommendation before pumping. you can know what is wrong with your sweet body by reading it.

The full chapter on insulin pumping can be viewed and downloaded in PDF format.

Showdown with Diabetes
by Deb Butterfield

A comprehensive understanding of the evolution of diabetes research, brings us up to date on current therapeutic options, and helps readers to grasp the many challenges that still lie ahead. For the families of people with diabetes and the medical professionals who care for them, it also offers a rare and frank insight into the life of a diabetic person beyond the day-to-day physical management of the disease. Going further than the clinical language of blood tests, diets, and insulin regimens, it shows diabetes as a force that molds a person's personality and profoundly shapes his or her life.

Diabetes Burnout
by William H. Polonsky, PhD, CDE

One reader writes: If you have been stressed out about diabetes and cant quiet figure out why, you need this book.

If a loved one has diabetes and it seems that everything you say to them about diabetes is wrong, you need this book.

William Polonsky is very insightful on this subject. I have been struggling with Type I diabetes for 15 years and have read many books on the subject. What I like about this book it that it is "interactive" This books gives you direction. It gives you hope. Diabetes is a tough thing to go through and this book validates your feelings. It handles objectives in a very clear manner. Its not just a bunch of information thrown at you. Dr. Polonsky suggests ways to include the information that he writes about in very real situations.

This book is uplifting, refreshing, direct, (humorous too!).

Dr. Bernstein's Diabetes Solution: A Complete Guide to Achieving Normal Blood Sugars
by Richard K., MD Bernstein, Timothy J. Aubert, Frank Vinicor

I've not read the book. I'm told that the general advice is good, but the dietry advice (hi-fat lo-carb = stable bg's and low complications risk) runs counter to mainstream thinking. Some people say that the improvement in their health and diabetes control when they went on his lo-carb diet was remarkable.

Sweet Invisible Body : Reflections on a Life With Diabetes
by Lisa Roney

One of the most realistic autobiographies about DM that I have read. Many of the other ones make it seem like no big deal, but this one admits that it is a big part of life, and I especially liked that. It's smooth reading too. Very good. I definitely recommend it to everyone.

Clinical Management of the Child and Teenager with Diabetes
by Leslie Plotnick and Randi Henderson

Reviewed by David E. Goldstein, MD
The authors explain that this book is intended for primary care clinicians who, in the face of expanding managed care, will be responsible by necessity for diabetes management. The book is divided into an introduction and 13 chapters that cover the full range of patient care issues as well as more basic aspects of diabetes, including up-to-date information about the causes, classification, and diagnosis as well as "hot" research topics such as new insulin delivery systems and clinical trials on prevention of type I diabetes. The writing style is easy to follow with numerous case histories to illustrate the concepts. The text is replete with good illustrations and tables. In addition, the appendix has useful forms for home record keeping, sample letters for schools, a sample clinic assessment form, and a sample hospital clinical path form for management of diabetic ketoacidosis and for routine management. In addition, the appendix includes an excellent list of references and useful resources including diabetes-related Web sites. The chapters on medical presentation and initial management (chapter 2) and on psychological issues (chapters 11 and 12) are particularly well done.
