Summary
  • An estimated 1 in 600 children in the United States develops Type 1 diabetes, the most common form of diabetes in kids. A diagnosis of Type 1 diabetes can be distressing and confusing for parents and caregivers, but now there is expert help. 100 Questions & Answers About Your Child's Type 1 Diabetes provides authoritative, practical answers to the most common questions about the disease. This reader-friendly guide is an invaluable resource for learning how to manage the medical, emotional, and practical daily challenges of raising a child with Type 1 diabetes. --
  • "100 Questions & Answers About Your Child's Type 1 Diabetes will be a great resource to families with newly diagnosed children. It made me think back to all the questions I had when my daughter was diagnosed---some that I was afraid to ask. Even though we've been living with Hannah's diabetes for 5 years, I still learned a few things I didn't know!"---Pam, parent of a child with Type 1 diabetes --
  • "100 Questions & Answers About Your Child's Type 1 Diabetes is very informative, and a great resource to have as different situations arise. I found that it helped me to understand the disease better and look at the overall picture instead of focusing on blood glucose readings and giving insulin shots."---Kristin, mother of a toddler recently diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes --
  • "As a Nurse Practitioner who provides direct care to people with diabetes and the grandmother of an 11-year-old with Type 1 diabetes, I feel that this book is very valuable. With a diabetes diagnosis, parents are often overwhelmed, and 100 Questions & Answers About Your Child's Type 1 Diabetes helps to put it into perspective. The personal comments are wonderful because they're written by a real person with real experiences. I recommend it for every parent of a newly diagnosed child."---Loretta Hothersall, NP, PhD --Book Jacket
