The all-in-one, comprehensive resource for the millions of people with diabetes who use insulin, revised and updated.
Few diabetes books focus specifically on the day-to-day issues facing people who use insulin. Diabetes educator Gary Scheiner provides the tools to "think like a pancreas" -- to successfully master the art and science of matching insulin to the body's ever-changing needs. Comprehensive, free of medical jargon, and packed with useful information not readily available elsewhere, such as:
Day-to-day blood glucose control and monitoring
Designing an insulin program to best match your lifestyle
Up-to date medication and technology
New insulin formulations and combinations
With detailed information on new medications and technologies -- both apps and devices -- surrounding insulin, as well as new injection devices, and dietary recommendations, Think Like a Pancreas is the insulin user's go-to guide.
