Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Meredith Kiger
According to Dr. John Buse, who wrote the foreword to this helpful book, diabetes is at epidemic proportions worldwide, especially Type II diabetes, and is expected to double by the year 2030. Because one can have diabetes and have few recognizable symptoms, it is important, especially for young people, to learn as much as they can about the disease. The chances are great that you or someone you know will develop this disease. The appealing layout features 16 areas with titles such as: Now That You Have Diabetes, Living Well—Diet and Nutrition, Dining Out, Medications, Diabetes and Alternative Treatments and Miscellaneous Complications. Each area has five or more questions commonly asked with short, but to the point, answers so that young people can get the information they want and need without reading a lot of text. Fifteen charts are included such as a calorie/fat conversion table to help find facts easily. The only thing missing are questions about possible treatments of the future for Type I diabetics. It is the perfect book for a teen recently diagnosed, both for the patient and his/her family. A glossary and index are included. Reviewer: Meredith Kiger, Ph.D.
