Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Library Journal, 7/17/09
“Colberg and Villa-Cabellero team up to provide Latinos with the latest information on managing diabetes. The authors cover diet, exercise, stress, and diabetes-related health conditions, interspersing the information-laden text with vignettes about diabetic Latinos.”

Houston Chronicle, 12/17/09
“Latino children have almost a 50 percent chance of developing diabetes, so a book appealing to this segment of the population should have an audience.”
 

Diabetes Educator, February 2012 “A supportive and comprehensive guide to diabetes self-management.”

    Loved this book...

    I absolutely loved reading this book, just picked it up at the library and since I had to return it, I want to buy a hard and soft copy.
    I am Mexican-American, and I am pre-diabetic and I have a daughter that is a juvenile diabetic...aye caramba!, what can I say it runs in the family! Refreshingly the writer really understands what we may suffer, from a cultural standpoint; our foods, our beliefs, our habits, etc. and he puts it in a very confident perspective and gives clear but educated advice and instruction of what will help us change to be healthier, better food choice, positive mind set and habits. He includes some great stories that other Hispanic diabetics share about their success, challenges and treatment in diabetes. I finished this book feeling very good about me, my culture, and my confidence to care for my family's diabetes!! Lastly very easy to read and well written!!
