Living with Diabetes

Overview

There are two principal types of diabetes: Type 1 and Type 2. Though each affects the body differently, both can result in blood sugar levels that are too high or too low. People with Type 1 diabetes require insulin injections, which may have a significant impact on their daily life and activities. Type 2 diabetes can often be treated with diet and medication. Both types of the disease can lead to serious, long-term health complications.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up- Although written for teens with diabetes, this title would be useful for anybody interested in the condition and the daily reality of living with it. Most chapters end with a "What You Need to Know" section that succinctly summarizes important points. All issues relevant to diabetic teens are covered, from the natures of Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes and the choices available to regulate blood sugar, to the importance of diet and exercise and the emotional challenges involved. Other particulars are also addressed, such as the reality of traveling, the consequences for diabetics of alcohol consumption and eating disorders, teens' rights under the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act of 2004, and health-insurance issues. A list of support groups is appended. The information is presented clearly and matter-of-factly and its slightly "scared-straight" approach lets teens know up front what they are facing and how to deal with it.-Ragan O'Malley, Saint Ann's School, Brooklyn, NY
