Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Karen M. Green, BSN, MSN (University of Chicago Medical Center)
Description: This is a comprehensive instructional guide for teens describing the types of diabetes; basic pathophysiology; treatment modalities, including medications, diet, and exercise; coping mechanisms; and practical solutions. The content derived from leading experts, authorities in the field and government institutes of health, is well documented.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide information to teens who have, or know someone who has, diabetes on managing the disease while preventing complications and leading a healthy life. There is a need for a book about diabetes specifically aimed at teenagers with both type 1 and type 2 diabetes that treats the reader as a person interested in becoming knowledgeable and aware of his/her health. The book is well intentioned and very complete; the teen audience can use the table of contents to determine sections of the book of special interest.
Audience: The book is written for teenagers with diabetes or who have friends or relatives with diabetes. Parents of teens or teachers of teenagers would also benefit. The editor of this book brought the work of the National Institutes of Health, national organizations and associations primarily engaged in diabetes management or education, and leading experts together in an authoritative volume.
Features: The book begins with a general discussion of diabetes facts and statistics. Very quickly the content focuses on self-management of diabetes with the help of the healthcare team listing treatment options and self-management tools. The author includes diet and exercise as well as insulin injection, insulin pumps and medication in the treatment of diabetes. Almost half of the book addresses problems specific to teenagers living with diabetes while trying to maintain a normal, active, social high school life. Since part of the purpose of the book is to assist in the prevention of complications, there is a substantial section on the subject. The book asks and answers questions that teenagers may find uncomfortable to discuss. The closing chapter is especially helpful, with lists of additional books and articles available for further exploration.
Assessment: There are few books written for the teenager with diabetes. In Control: A Guide for Teens with Diabetes, Betschart and Thorn (John Wiley & Sons, 2001) is a short paperback offering tips for self-management, but without the pathophysiology and background found in Diabetes Information for Teens. Diabetes at 14: Choosing Tighter Control for an Active Life (Flower Press, 2003) by Bill Melluish who has type 1 diabetes, is his personal journey to better control in order to compete athletically. However, Diabetes Information for Teens not only contains important information about diabetes, its management, complications, and its effect on lifestyle, it also deals with practical matters such as obtaining a driver's license and what a teenager can expect in school. The information is timely and well researched; some of the material may also be directed towards parents or teachers.
VOYA - Marilyn Brien
Any student who has an interest in diabetes will find a wealth of information on coping with the disease in this remarkable guide. Medically accurate and factual information presented in clear and concise terms for youth is not easily found, but this book readily meets those criteria. Major parts of the book include basic information, treatment and management, related health concerns, day-to-day living, and coping with feelings and relationships. Risk factors in different ethnic groups, the increase in Type 2 diabetes and pre-diabetes among youth, and preventive measures are all discussed. Explanations for medical terms, treatments, and instructions that a teen is likely to encounter in medical care, are presented in considerable detail. Useful diagrams, charts, and sidebars as well as the question-and-answer format make the book very user-friendly. A major focus is to provide the student with tools for making informative and health-promoting decisions in his or her lifestyle. An extended section directs students to a variety of resources on diabetes. This expensive but valuable resource for those youth with an interest in diabetes also would be useful for teachers but would lose the impact of the personal approach directed to the student. Other series titles cover mental health, drug information, allergies, and learning disabilities.
School Library Journal
Gr 9 Up-This no-nonsense volume deals with all aspects of the disease, including coping with feelings and relationships, day-to-day living with diabetes, and basic medical facts. The 59 chapters also include information on the condition in various ethnic groups and related health concerns. "It's a Fact" and "Quick Tip" information boxes appear throughout. Students dealing with their own diabetes or that of a friend or family member or those writing reports on the topic will find this a valuable resource.-Lynn Evarts, Sauk Prairie High School, Prairie du Sac, WI Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
