5.0 out of 5 stars If you can only afford one diabetes book, this is it., 30 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Type 1 Diabetes in Children Adolescents (Paperback)
I purchased this book a week after my 12yo son had been diagnosed with type I diabetes. While I was familiar with the physio-pathology of the disease, thanks to my background as a (non practicing) MD, I was also a devastated father feeling helpless in front of a mountain of practical questions and scary "what ifs" scenarios.

The first virtue of that book was to calm that anxiety: yes, the problems were there, but they were manageable and clear practical strategies to deal with them were outlined. Then, it is truly encyclopedic: there doesn't seem to be a situation for which quick and immediately useful practical information is not available. From physical activity to religious fasting days, from hanling colds to needle angles, everything is there. It is well written, immediately accessible and as scientifically accurate as its form and scope allows. While I did buy more advanced books such as "Type 1 Diabetes:Clinical Management of the Athlete" because my son wanted to maintain his 14+ weekly hours of intensive exercise, most of the additional info I gathered was already summarized here.

To be short: this is the first time in my life that I am so deeply thankful that a book exists. It helped tremendously throughout the discovery phase and is a reference I wouldn't want to be without in the future. Thanks Dr Hanas. Thanks.
