From the Author

You can do this! This masterpiece combines useful approaches and tips I have learned from thousands of people and their families with diabetes, as well as important the facts from the diabetes educator science circles. This new edition is a major overhaul of the first edition. It has a road map to give you structure as you navigate through the book. Self-care topics are presented in a new order that will give you the most impact. You will also find new cartoons, patient humor, and yeah – all the latest science stuff broken down into understandable summaries. I’m really excited to cover the inside scoop on how insulin is adjusted (and not to panic for those who are not needing insulin; there are plenty of topics throughout the book that you will find helpful – like supplements, gluten-free, healthy coping and sexual health).

So, here is to your health! It would be my honor to partner with you on your journey as you work through this interactive book.
