Best book on type one

What book have you found to be most helpful and informative? I’m looking at “Think Like a Pancreas”, but first I want some input.

you already picked my fav, second one would be

“Using Insulin: Everything You Need for Success with Insulin” by John Walsh (Author), Ruth Roberts (Author), Chandrasekhar Varma (Author)

and one for consideration
"Diabetes Burnout: What to Do When You Can’t Take It Anymore" by William H. Polonsky Ph.D. (Author)

good luck

Thanks! I ordered the first two.

Sweet Kids, by the ADA.

The books recommended are all good.

I don’t think there’s just one. You’ll find useful and not helpful information in almost every book. Try to stick with ones that are published in the last 10-15 years and that are written by diabetics or the parents of diabetics.

Find an author that takes a real world approach to diabetes.

The best introductory book is the Pink Panther guide to diabetes.

I like Riva Greenberg’s “50 Diabetes Myths That Can Ruin Your Life; And the 50 Diabetes Truths That Can Save It.” Great book for a type 1 or 2. When I was in bad diabetes burnout I was really helped by Sherri Colberg and Steven Edelman’s “50 Secrets of the Longest Living People with Diabetes.”

The Spike and Bo Loy books are good but they are a little overboard when it comes to sick days and advocate for taking a cooler of food wherever they go.

There are tons of great online resources too. The author of “Think Like a Pancreas” has online classes at Ginger Vieira and other bloggers have great information on DiabetesMine.
