Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Susan and Leslie… combine their respective powerful strengths into The Complete Diabetes Organizer, a must-read title for people with diabetes: one that focuses not on WHAT things to do when you live with diabetes, but on HOW to fit them into your busy lifestyle, how to make them work…. From ideas on how to best store, plan for, and label things, every chapter is a treasure chest to help your blood sugars through lessened stress and better diabetes management…. The book closes with a phenomenal Diabetes Travel Guide chapter. I highly recommend this title: there's lots you can learn in The Complete Diabetes Organizer regardless of how long you have had diabetes."

-Manny Hernandez, TuDiabetes.org

"The Complete Diabetes Organizer is an indispensable resource as people journey through life with diabetes. Susan Weiner and Leslie Josel’s straightforward, practical tips will help eliminate disorganization, and enable balance, confidence, and integration of important life skills that can lead to success on the journey. Whether you are newly diagnosed and are struggling to establish a rhythm; are experienced with your condition but strive to improve your management; or are facing burnout, frustration, complications, or confusion; this book is for you. Read its words, write in its pages, and make it your guide."

-Francine R. Kaufman, MD

“Managing [diabetes] can be daunting. The co-authors of this practical, interactive workbook — Susan Weiner, a dietitian, and Leslie Josel, a professional organizer — can help. The workbook covers setting goals, organizing supplies, and a ‘diabetes-friendly kitchen,’ managing diabetes at work…and at school…and more. For diabetics, disorganization can be devastating—even deadly. This book could be a lifesaver.”

-Peggy Brown, Newsday

"I think that this book is an excellent read for anyone with any type of diabetes who is looking to find a way to make life less chaotic and frenetic. There are some excellent tips in this book for not just how to organize in terms of space or routines, but apps that you can use for both iPhone and Android based phones to help manage your diabetes, and tips on how to incorporate some of those necessary tasks to live a healthy life with diabetes into your daily life, and do it without added worry. I highly recommend this book, and think that it is an excellent addition to my diabetes library."

-Aliza Zaleon, Health in my Mind

"Not surprisingly, the book is well organized, even to the extent of having a built-in bookmark. And, the authors also offer ideas from many other diabetes experts who understand the challenges best- they all have diabetes. I’ll just encourage you to grab a copy for yourself, and see if the tips and guidance don’t make your diabetes management activities more efficient, and more successful."

-Toby Smithson, DiabetesEveryday.com

"From her distinguished career and experience in the fields of diabetes and dietetics, Susan Weiner brings helpful tips and tricks that are guaranteed to ease daily mechanics, promote improved nutrition, and relieve stress caused by the demands of daily diabetes management. Certified professional organzier and ADHD specialist Leslie Josel applies her expertise to all areas of diabetes, with simple, sure-fire techniques that will allow you to disentangle your patients with diabetes from the clutches of chronic disorganization.

The book includes chapters on "Your Diabetes-Friendly Kitchen," "The Organized Refrigerator, Freezer and Pantry," and "Exercise and Your Diabetes Health." This book is a must-have for people with diabetes, their care-givers, RDs, CDEs, and other health care providers."

-Fritz Lenneman, foodandnutrition.org

“Anyone with diabetes could benefit from reading and using this book, but it is especially helpful for those who struggle in managing their diabetes care from handling medications, food, cooking, and shopping to remembering what to do, when to do it, and who to see for diabetes care. This book also would be great for parents of children who have diabetes. The author walks a person through being diagnosed to managing the diabetes on a daily basis and throughout life. They have created step-by-step guides, anticipating the needs of those who have diabetes, offering practical suggestions, and providing very detailed suggestions for those taking insulin, who may have more “stuff” to organize. The 12 chapters are packed with helpful guidelines and suggestions. The authors have stepped back to examine how good organization can help people with diabetes manage their disease. This is a wonderful helpful guide for everyday living, work, school, and traveling in one clearly written book.”

-Peggy Zeller, Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics

    I recently had the privilege to read the book The Complete Diabe

    I recently had the privilege to read the book The Complete Diabetes Organizer your guide to a less stressful and more manageable diabetes life. When I first received this book written by Susan Weiner and Leslie Josel I was not quite sure what to expect from the inside, but once I opened the pages and started reading what I found was nothing short of amazing.
    I am the parent of a 9 year old type 1 diabetic and a very disorganized parent in regards to where to store things, how to store them, remembering where I stored things etc. Starting right away in chapter 1 you start to understand how to reach goals, now as a parent and not the type 1 diabetic this section didn’t hit me as intensely in regards to diabetes care but it did make me sit down and think about my own personal exercise regimen. One of the many good things that I found while reading this book is that even though this book is the Complete Diabetes Organizer, the tactics learned in the book can be used in many areas of your life for diabetics and non-diabetics alike.

    The Complete Diabetes Organizer will help you get your diabetes supplies in order, assign them a location, get yourself into a daily routine that works for your schedule so you can stay on your daily schedule that includes blood sugar checks while at work or play. Now I must say that they did not forget about us parents of Type 1 Diabetics in this book pssst …. We have a whole chapter dedicated just to us!

    This truly is a must have book in your library in my opinion!

    I hope you have as great an experience and learn as much as I did from this book.

    The presentation and the value of the content in this book are both absolutely outstanding. Anyone who has diabetes or knows someone with diabetes would be extremely fortunate to have this book in their possession. Managing a diabetes lifestyle can be incredibly overwhelming. However, with the help of this book, getting organized is presented in a detailed and comprehendible manner fit for any reader. This book is certainly a staple on the bookshelf of ANYONE involved in the world of nutrition and dietetics, especially those who specialize in diabetes.

    The Complete Diabetes Organizer: Your Guide to a Less Stressful

    The Complete Diabetes Organizer: Your Guide to a Less Stressful and More Manageable Diabetes Life is perfectly named. Not only is this beautiful hardcover guide chock-full of important, helpful information, but the book itself is also an organizational tool with plenty of spaces for notes and lists, an elastic band page holder, and a pocket. The book covers everything from getting your supplies, medications and medical paperwork in order; to organizing your kitchen and your daily schedule; meal planning; and managing diabetes at work, school, while traveling, and during the holidays. The personal testimonials are invaluable to those who need to hear from someone who has been there before. Keeping it relevant to the times, the authors include information on every kind of app and website to help you manage your (or your loved one's) disease. Susan Weiner and Leslie Josel are such a smart pairing and experts in their field. The ideas shared in this book would be useful for anyone managing a chronic disease, particularly if they are also managing a busy household; however, The Complete Diabetes Organizer clearly has the specific needs of someone managing diabetes in mind. I highly recommend this book. - Diane de Jesus RD

    I found it hard to put the "organizer" down. Every chapter had more interesting and useful stuff than I thought possible. We gave one copy to one of our clients with type-1 diabetes who just found out she is pregnant, and she LOVES it! Great material for busy adults, parents of kids with diabetes, and anyone who just wants to get their *!%# together.

    Diabetes is unique in that it requires the person with it to embark on a whole new way of living - eating, sleeping, working, traveling, exercising - and stick with those changes for life. In The Complete Diabetes Organizer, health care professional Susan Weiner and professional organizer Leslie Josel fill an important long-standing gap in the diabetes world with this practical guide on how to stay organized, empowered, and healthy for the real behavior change necessary to live well with diabetes.

    And its not just the obvious eating advice and testing tip fare you find in most diabetes books. While these basics are covered in a thorough and approachable manner, the authors also bring us voices of people living with type 1 and type 2 diabetes who offer up a lifetime of experience on everything from lowering stress levels to traveling around the world. The book covers all the bases in the home, workplace, and school, and also helps readers through the often tangled world of medical bills and insurance involved with chronic disease management. Dozens of checklists, organizational inventories, and helpful product suggestions make this a necessary addition to any PWD (person with diabetes) bookshelf. The exceptional attention to detail carries through to the practical book packaging, which features spiral binding to allow the reader to lay it flat for writing notes, and an expandable inside pocket and elastic book band that helps to keep any "note clutter" contained inside the book. I know a few PWDs in my life who will definitely be getting this gift over the holidays.
