Overview


Most guides focus on treating diabetes, but don’t address the reality of living with the condition. This book stands apart from the others, as it focuses exclusively on the person with diabetes, rather than solely on the disease. Diabetes experts Micahel A. Weiss, who lived with Type 1 Diabetes for more than 20 years, and Martha M. Funnell, an internationally-known diabetes educator, provide straight talk for those who want to take charge of their condition and construct a realistic plan for daily living.Whether readers are newly-diagnosed or have been struggling with diabetes for years, this is the first (and possibly, only) book they need. The authors understand that managing diabetes is all about an individual’s daily choices: what to eat, what to take, whether to exercise, and how often to check glucose levels. Now readers can sort through their feelings, needs, and inclinations toward making these choices, and fashion a “real-world” regimen that will provide an optimum quality of life. It will empower anyone to make the changes needed for living well with diabetes.

What People Are Saying

Amy Tenderich
In addition to setting personal goals for daily BG levels, lipids, weight and other physical parameters, you're asked to rate on a scale of 1 to 10, how much RESPONSIBILITY you want for your own diabetes plan (versus your doctor or educator), and how much FLEXIBILITY you desire.A central theme in Weiss and Funnell's book is: REAL diabetes is not easy. Thank heavens! Another set of authors willing to put that down in black and white. (Amy Tenderich, Diabetesmine.com, October 24, 2007)
June James
This book offers a simple commonsense approach to living with diabetes. It incorporates all the best elements of a good self-help book in a form that is easily understood and leaves the reader with a strong sense that they and only they have the right and power to effectively manage their diabetes. (June James, Practical Diabetes International, October 2007)
Kelly Close
We strongly encourage you to go pick up The Little Diabetes Book YOU Need to Read. This quick-reading, constructive book will serve you well in devising or refining your diabetes game plan. The authors are a fabulous team- Martha M. Funnel, a well-known diabetes educator at the University of Michigan, and Michael A. Weiss, a type 1 businessman who has been a past chair of the ADA. They are clearly friends and by the end of the book, you will feel like they're your friends too. Throughout the volume, little gray boxes feature "Marti speaks" and Mike speaks", offering personal highlights from the two. You look forward to these as they help refine your care. The authors' personal experiences with diabetes are vast, and I found their insights constructive in helping refine my own plan.. Our favorite part of the book was the last chapter, titled Staying the Course- it's all about the realities of diabetes- reading this made me feel quite motivated about what I could do to improve my care- thanks so much to these authors. (Kelly Close, diaTribe.us, November 2007)

    Very Practical Information!

    This book is very helpful in the day-to-day living with Diabetes. It has all the information most other books have on what diabetes is, what one should do to control blood sugar levels, what to do and not to do; but it also has practical applications for living with diabetes. I highly recommend this book to everyone who has this disease and to the family members of anyone who suffers from diabetes so they too know how to help.
