Overview

What do people with diabetes do when something goes wrong? Many turn to Diabetes 911 for answers. It is the only book available that specifically addresses everything readers might ask, from everyday emergencies to what to do in case of a natural disaster. The first part of the book walks the reader through the basics of prevention — how to put together a diabetes survival kit, what supplies to keep on hand, and how to stay cool when an emergency happens. Other chapters give step-by-step instructions and detailed explanations of how to deal with hypoglycemic reactions, sick days, travel situations, emergency treatment of diabetic children, and extreme emergencies.

If you don't have a book on emergencies and natural (or unnatural) disasters, this will cover it. If you have another book on disaster preparedness, this just adds the things you should have available for your diabetes which you would normally include in your medicines anyway when evacuating etc,
